Cawdor Castle - Review
Set amid the gardens in the Parish of Cawdor, this castle is built around a 15th century tower house. It remains in the Campbell ownership and was passed on to Campbells from Clan Calder- the original owners in 16th century.
Known for its literary connection to Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Macbeth’ where the title character is made ‘Thane of Cawdor’, the castle was actually built years later the life of King Macbeth.
An A-listed building with the garden listed among the significant gardens of Scotland, it is a must-visit on your Scotland trip!

Cawdor Castle, Inverness Reviews
A fantastic place to visit. About £10 for an adult and then there are concessions. Lovely tea room very reasonably priced. You can get a filter coffee and nice bacon role for a fiver. Lots to see and hundreds of years of history to gander at. Large car park to the side and toilets inside the castle and at main entry gates. Souvenir shops. Small guided tours available on request. It's just a few miles from the A96 and easy to get to.
Great day out. The castle was great, particularly the paintings and the two main bedrooms, presumably one being fir him and one being for her. The gardens were also nice. There apparently was a small hedge maze, but its entrance was locked and so it could o of be glimpsed at over the admittedly low hedge tops. There seemed to be a type of Minatour stone bust at the centre of the maze. This could at time of visiting though, unfortunately only be viewed from afar.
Nice grounds, nice walk and pretty little castle. Only a very small part of it is open, plenty to look at but it's over pretty quickly finishing right in a very small shop area. Maze was also closed.
Entry isn't cheap but this is a lovely castle with immaculate grounds and is a real glimpse into how there are still soo many landed gentry in our country. The gift shop has a nice range of quality items and the cafe is also of a very high standard. The gardeners are amazing - not a single weed in the ground!
The gardens are spectacular, the castle is in great condition, lived in and very homely. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Good food in the cafe. Well worth a visit.
