Ballindalloch Castle



Cancel Message

Ballindalloch is one of the most beautiful and romantic castles in Scotland. It lies in the heart of whisky country with the distilleries of Glenfiddich, Glenfarclas and Glenlivet nearby. The setting is magnificent, surrounded by majestic hills, the tumbling waters of the rivers Spey and Avon flow through the grounds.First and foremost Ballindalloch is a much loved family home and one of the very few privately owned castles to be lived in continuously by its original family, the Macpherson-Grants since 1546. It exemplifies the transition from stark tower house, necessary for survival in 16th century Scotland to the elegant and comfortable house so beloved of Victorians in the highlands. Ballindalloch is also the home of the famous Aberdeen Angus herd of cattle founded by Sir George Macpherson-Grant in 1860, and now the oldest herd in continuous existence.Castle shop and tearoom.
