barcaldine.jpgBarcaldine Castle - Historic and atmospheric tasting in a 17th Century Scottish Castle

For the romantics – that perfect intimate setting. Open fires in the Grand Hall, what better setting for delving into some of the finest malt whiskies, all under the watchful gaze of the Castle's ancestors adorning the walls!

Set on the peaceful shores of Loch Creran on the West Coast of Scotland, Barcaldine Castle is one of only a few ancient castles on the Scottish mainland that you can stay at. It is set against breath-taking views, from the snow-capped mountains of Glencoe in early Spring to the golden colours of Autumn. Built in 1609 by “Black” Duncan Campbell and restored in 1897 by Sir Duncan Campbell 3rd Baronet of Barcaldine, Barcaldine Castle offers something truly beautiful.

Abbie and her husband Daniel will make sure that a warm welcome awaits you in the beautiful surroundings of Argyll’s only ancient castle, with bed and breakfast facilities. They will take pleasure in ensuring you have a memorable stay at one of the finest bed and breakfast castles in Scotland.

Barcaldine Castle is not only a truly unique place to stay, it also is the ultimate venue to make friends with the (Single Malt) ‘spirits’ of the West Coast during a tutored tasting session, and an ideal starting point for one of SecretStills’ high-end Single Malt Whisky Tours and Itineraries.
