Dunrobin Castle, Sutherland

North Coast 500

The exterior of Dunrobin Castle resembles a French chateau, with fairy-tale spires and turrets, and was romantically remodelled by Sir Charles Barry in 1845. Journey through the castle, which is open between April and October, to admire fine furnishings and an impressive art collection. The dining room is set as it would have been for a fine dinner in 1850, and the drawing room was re-designed by Sir Robert Lorimer in 1915 following a devastating fire. Explore the castle gardens and grounds and don’t miss the eclectic private collection in the garden museum. Places to visit nearby include Brora Beach, Brora Golf Club, and Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve.
