Ballindalloch Castle named one of CNN top 10 Castles in Scotland.

imageIn honor of Tartan Day in the USA, CNN has selected 10 of Scotland’s most spectacular castles to visit.  Fairytale 16th century Ballindalloch Castle made the top 10 list and fortunately for us sits right on our doorstep (4 ml).  Worth a trip even just to enjoy and walk around the grounds, however you will not be disappointed by a walk through the castle. Ballindalloch Castle remains privately owned and is home to The Macpherson Grant family.  As far as castles go Ballindalloch is intimate and cozy, family life is very much evident with many family photos and intimate touches on display. Enjoy the Tea room and shop, Speyside walk and magnificent gardens. Ballindalloch Castle sits on the beautiful Ballindalloch Estate  renowned for its golf course as well as shooting and stalking. Ballindalloch Castle was also nominated as Scotland’s most dog friendly castle with a special area set aside for dogs.
