It is the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl and holds an important place in Scotland’s history. Strategically located in the Strath of Garry. It is one of Scotland’s most visited historic house and the home of the Atholl Highlanders. The castle grounds feature a magnificent 9 acre walled garden, recently restored to its original Georgian design, of fruit trees and vegetables, complete with Chinese bridge, Gothic folly and a trail of contemporary and 18th century sculptures. More than 30 rooms are on display, full of Scottish cultural history, architectural design, period furnishings, family portraits, landscape paintings and a colourful military past.
