Aldourie Castle
Loch Ness

Straight out of a fairy tale, the beautiful Grade A listed Aldourie Castle is located directly on the scenic banks of Loch Ness. A major social hub for house parties and holidays in the Victoria era, the castle dates from 1626 and is a prime example of Scottish Baronial architecture, complete with turrets and towers. Privately owned and inhabited by the Cameron Family until 2002, Aldourie Castle recently underwent a loving and painstaking renovation to ensure that its many unique features remain in pristine condition. Despite being the epitome of grandeur, Aldourie manages to make you feel at home from the moment you drive down the windy tree-lined drive through the castle's rugged grounds. Truly welcoming and inviting, the castle's many public spaces are perfect for socialising from the Red Drawing room with its roaring wood fire and walls hung with family portraits to the informal and formal dining rooms, games room and kitchen. The 15 bedrooms at Aldourie are simply magnificent restored to the style of the castle's Victorian hey-day, many of the beds are romantic four posters and several have been inspired by the Pre-Raphelites you'll find William Morris wallpaper and Millais reproductions on the walls. Many boast views of the Loch, and several even enjoy dual aspect. Bathrooms are romantic and scattered throughout the 2 floors look out for the wooden bathtub and nymph mural in the Loch Room. Available for exclusive hire only.

I don't know where I'm going but I promise it won't be boring.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
