Dunrobin Castle, ancient seat of the Earls of Sutherland, is the northernmost of Scotland's great houses. Standing in an immense park overlooking the sea, it is also the largest house in the Northern Highlands, with 189 rooms, and is one of Britain's oldest continuously-inhabited residences, dating in part from the early 1300s.
During your visit, see the opulent and fascinating collection of furniture, pictures, objets d'art and family memorabilia, displayed mostly in their original settings. Step out into the Dunrobin Castle Gardens, every bit as grand as the castle. These magnificent, formal 19th-century gardens were modeled on Versailles, designed in grand French style to echo the architecture of Dunrobin Castle.
Photography is not allowed inside the castle. Bags/backpacks cannot be taken into the castle. Participants must negotiate steep steps to the gardens.
