About the Ballroom

Cast your mind back to Edwardian times and discover one of the top 5-star hotels in Inverness. Steeped in history and rich in elegance, behold graceful ladies in long silk dresses, gentlemen clad in only the finest attire, and servants discreetly ensuring that the wine flows well into the night. The harpist is gently strumming in the Music Room, and the assembled guests are sweeping magisterially through the doors of a wood panelled banqueting hall. Candles glisten as the silverware reflects the flickering light on every surface. This fantasy can be all yours for your very own exclusive use when hiring Achnagairn Castle Ballroom.

Ballroom at Achnagairn Castle for exclusive use hire

Behold Achnagairn Castle ­

Founded in 1912, the owners the Ogden Family wanted to throw the most spectacular party for their daughter’s 21st birthday. There was nowhere suitable in the whole of Scotland. Undaunted, they decided to build their own banqueting hall in the Highlands – the finest in the land. The finest craftsmen were set to work, giving us the glorious wood panelling, the remarkable stone fireplace, with its inscription of 1912, and the winding spiral staircase leading to the atmospheric turret and minstrel’s gallery. Unsurprisingly, their daughter was delighted, and our historical Ballroom continues to be hired for exclusive use allowing that delight to continue today.
