Luxury Holidays At Inverlochy Castle

Back in 1873, Queen Victoria spent a week at Inverlochy, declaring that she’d never seen ‘a lovelier or more romantic spot’. Nestled at the foot of Ben Nevis, surrounded by evergreen trees and a sparkling loch, this enchantment remains today, making Inverlochy Castle a truly royal choice for your luxury Scotland holiday. The Highlands experience begins before you arrive – whether you enjoy the spellbinding drive up the Great Glen or reach nearby Fort William by steam train, before arriving at the 19th century castle by Rolls Royce. Enjoy a warm welcome beneath the ceiling frescoes of the Great Hall, relax by a crackling fire in a timeless drawing room, enjoy a tipple in the extensive whisky library, and unwind in the comfort of one of the 17 rooms and suites. A stay at Inverlochy Castle promises an unforgettable culinary experience, with legendary father and son duo Albert Roux and Michel Roux Jr taking the helm of the kitchen. Get the most out of your luxury Scottish Highlands stay with a variety of outdoor pursuits – whether white water rafting, mountain biking or a wildlife photography tour.
