“Treat yourself…”

“From the moment we pulled up outside ‘The Black Castle’ aka Barcaldine Castle, we knew this would be a special experience. Set against a gorgeous backdrop of Loch Creran in a beautiful part of Scotland, this small but luxurious 17th century castle was everything we could have hoped for and more.

You can be sure of a warm welcome from Liz and Ronnie, who are always close by and willing to help or answer questions about the castle and the local area. We stayed in the ‘Breadalbane’ room with the four-poster bed (so comfortable it was heartbreaking to leave it); a beautifully furnished room with a view over the loch. The complimentary teas, lemonade and Tunnock’s Teacakes went down well!

Breakfast was delicious, with enough to keep us going well into the afternoon. And I implore you to try the afternoon tea when you arrive, you won’t regret it!

It’d be a good idea to bring your own wine; the castle isn’t licensed to sell alcohol but you’re more than welcome to bring your own, which made for a lovely evening in the parlour room in front of the fire. There are board games, books and DVD’s to keep you entertained… and ask one of your hosts to show you around; the castle has a little bit more than meets the eye!”

Traveled: As a couple.
