Ballindalloch Castle

History & Heritage See & Do


Ballindalloch Castle is a preserved castle in the beautiful countryside of Speyside, north east Scotland. The castle is still owned and lived in by the Macpherson-Grant family who have resided at Ballindalloch since 1546.

The setting for Ballindalloch is stunning, with the Rivers Avon and Spey running through its grounds and surrounded by imposing hills. Speyside, of course, is also known for its whisky distilleries such as Glenlivet and Glenfiddich.

Visitors are welcome at Ballindalloch where the castle and its grounds are available to view and tour around. The estate also has a golf course, as well offering shooting and fishing packages for those who like their country sports. Self-catering cottages are available to stay in for short breaks and you can also pick up some of the locally-reared Aberdeen Angus beef at the castle shop.

The castle is open from the end of March to the end of September.
