Dunrobin Castle

Dunrobin Castle

The most northernly located among Scotland’s great homes, Dunrobin Castle is also the largest residence in the Northern Highlands with 189 rooms.

The Castle is reminiscent of a French chateau with its towering conical spires, and its design was influenced by Sir Charles Barry, who was responsible for designing the Houses of Parliament in London, as well as Scotland’s very own Sir Robert Lorimer. It was even used as a naval hospital during World War I, and then after the war, it was used as a boys’ boarding school from 1965 to 1972.

The community of Golspie and the town of Dornoch are both well-known for their cathedrals as well as the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. Dunrobin Castle can be found on the east coast of the Northern Highlands, overlooking the Moray Firth. It is roughly north of both of these places.

Dunrobin Castle is open from April 1st to October 31st each year.
