Cawdor Castle dates from the late 14th century, built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. An ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly tree which visitors can still see today in the dungeon.
The castle is still home to the Cawdor family to this day and lovingly filled with beautiful furniture, fine portraits, intriguing objects and amazing tapestries the Castle has evolved for over 600 years.
The castle’s carefully manicured grounds encompass three beautiful gardens, the Cawdor Big Wood and a 9-hole golf course. The castle also has a gift shop, bookshop and wool shop, in addition to a restaurant located in the castle and a snack bar near the car park.
Guided tours of either the Castle or Gardens are available via prior arrangement.
