Secluded and secure, with a 100% cleanliness rating from Visit Scotland: Achnagairn is the perfect spot to explore the Highlands post-lockdown
At Achnagairn, we are opening our doors for an exceptional summer: this year, our castle bedrooms will be available to book on a B&B basis! As many of our previous guests will know, we are usually a wedding and events venue, but this summer, as restrictions on larger gatherings unfortunately remain, we are delighted to offer our castle bedrooms for individuals and smaller groups to book! Each room is individually designed, with its own name and theme. Some have four poster beds, some whirlpool baths, but each will surprise and delight you!
Our Mini Manors make the ideal spot for post-lockdown family or friend reunion. Sleeping up to 12 people in 5 or 6 bedrooms, and with fabulously spacious and exquisitely designed kitchens and living rooms, you couldn't find a better spot for a getaway.
All Mini Manors are self catering, but we have excellent private catering options or restaurant recommendations if you want to push the boat out for your stay!
The Highlands are one of the most beautiful places in the world to drive, with dramatic roads and stunning scenery. The North Coast 500 (which has been developed as five hundred miles of gorgeous routes around the north coast of Scotland) is on our doorstep, and an ideal way for car-lovers to get out in a socially distanced way! In fact, Achnagairn Estate is fortunate to be at the start and finish of this iconic route. What that means is that you can stay in total luxury whilst preparing for your drive, or indeed, at the end, celebrating how well you have done!
Cortes House is a manor house in Aberdeenshire, ideal for family breaks or groups of friends. Large enough for everyone to have their own space (you can even invite the in-laws without any worry!), but intimate enough to feel like you are truly bonding with your nearest and dearest. The house has 10 main bedrooms and allows up to 30 people to stay in total luxury.
Whether you’re after a break as a family or group of friends, we’d love to help you Escape the Ordinary.
