Cawdor Castle & Gardens

Available With Our...

Cawdor Castle, it’s grounds and gardens are becoming increasingly popular with visitors to the Highlands and are certainly a must-see destination if you are considering an adventure from Inverness or Invergordon.

Take some time to wander the beautiful walled gardens and natural woodlands while taking in the castle’s extensive history dating back as far as 1180. The castle is a popular destination and a must-see, not least for its connection to the Shakespeare play Macbeth. Although the events of the play are fictional, the castle does have its own unique history. The legend goes that Cawdor Castle was built in 1454 around a small, live holly tree, which is still there today in what is now known as the vaulted cellar, and available for visitors to view.
