“Magical Time at the Black Castle!”
“Barcaldine Castle is fantastic. Probably the highlight of our 2 and half week trip. The surrounding countryside is peaceful and idyllic. The castle itself is not huge but is really cool, and very photogenic. It’s filled with carved furniture, carpets, objects of interest, paintings etc. Our room, the Breadalbane had a great carved four poster bed, good window views out over Loch Creran, nice big bathroom, very spacious room. It was amazing to stay in a 14th century castle, and you could feel the history.
Our hosts ( Vic and Thursa, filling in for Ronnie and Liz) were excellent and gave us a very good recommendation to dine at the Creagan Inn about a 10 minute drive along the Loch. We had the best meals of our trip and enjoyed a performance of Traditional Scottish folk music by a group called Nae Plans. What a night!
Breakfast at the castle was incredible, anything you could want. One afternoon we had the Castle to ourselves as other guests were out and the hosts had gone shopping, so we could indulge our Lord and Lady of the Manor fantasies by the fire place with a glass of wine in the Great Room. We loved this place!!
We didn’t have a GPS so it was a little tricky finding the castle…especially the night we returned from the Creagan Inn in darkness! But all in all, highly recommended for a romantic and relaxing time in a spectacular setting.”
