Craigievar Castle - Review

Scotland has some of the most mesmerizing castles along the countryside. Among the lot, Craigievar Castle is one of them. Almost out of a fairytale story, the castle is said to be the finest example of Scottish Baronial architecture. The overall appearance of the castle looks as if it has grown naturally out of the rolling hills. Today, the castle houses exclusive collection of family portraits by Jameson and Raeburn, ethnic furniture, 20th century old ceramics collection by Cecilia, Lady Sempill.

After visiting castle you can take any one of the trails in the grounds to see the splendid view of the castle.

Craigievar Castle, Aberdeen Reviews

  • What a fabulous tour with John today!!! We screeched up as a party of 7 a few minutes past the start of the last tour and they were lovely for accommodating us. The castle is absolutely fascinating and far exceeded my expectations, but the guided tour made it so worth it. Absolutely would recommend making the trip - the drive is beautiful too.

  • The original pink castle. Lots of family touches and moments make this castle feel lived in. The spiral stairs are very narrow so may not be suitable for everyone. We were lucky and got out on the roof but that is weather dependent. Unlike a lot of NTS properties there isn't a tea room as such although there are snacks and drinks available. There are woodland walks but we didn't do that so cannot comment on them.

  • Just gorgeous withsweeping views. The inside is not for the timid or infirm. There are steep, uneven spiral stairs and very low ceilings. Wear your sturdy shoes. The grounds alone make this a lovely woodland walk and picnic spot. It's also not as crowded as other castles.

  • Very nice castle and grounds. Good for short walks and tour around the castle. Nice coffee shop outside too.

  • Was a fantastic experience, the castle and grounds are beautiful, only guided tours are offered however wasn't too long or short, will definitely bring more family here when they are visiting us
