Craigston Castle, built by, and home to, the Urquhart family since 1604, is currently owned by William P. Urquhart. It is located on the north east coast of Scotland – considered by National Geographic to be one of the most beautiful coast lines in the world. Whilst staying at Craigston you have an excess of choice, by which I mean you can either stay at home and read a book by the fireside or you can organise for a massage carried out by a professional massueuse directly in your room, or enjoy a tailor-made and personal whiskey and gin tasting in the drawing room. There are board games, cards, croquet mallets, badminton and football equipment all available. If you are feeling a little more adventurous you can go fishing, clay pigeon shooting, play golf or go horse riding. Please note however that most of these activities must be booked a lot in advance.
There are a number of lovely walks just outside the front door and if you feel like cycling there are mountain bikes available for hire. Courses are held at Craigston at specific times of year include painting and cookery, and we are always open to other suggestions. Golf: the northeast of Scotland has 70 golf courses to choose from and we are ideally situated to allow the keen golfer to play on a different course every day of the week, including the world famous Royal Aberdeen and the Trump International Golf links. Through our partners, with prior notice, we can organise a golfing itinerary that is tailored to your specific requirements and abilities as well as whisky and castle trails
