Staying at Craigston


As guests of the Urquhart family you will have your choice of room, each beautifully decorated with period furniture including original four-poster beds. Each room has its own bathroom. Cots are available upon request.

Photographs of some of our rooms are available here: Fraser Room, Kings Room, Blue Room, The Old Nursery and White Room. (See also Reception Rooms and Kitchen.)

Also here are some photos of the bathrooms.


“In a time where international travel and foreign holidays have become commonplace, destinations, hotels and nice experiences can begin to blur into each other and become lost. Only the most unique or emotionally special stay clearly in mind and jump out when you are asked “What were your best holidays ever?” Craigston Castle will be one of those for me and my family, who came from all over the world to spend time together in this magical place. Other reviews have mentioned all the outstanding details and features, so I will just say that all expectations were exceeded and sincerely “Thank you” William and Barbara.”

In the evening you can sit by a roaring log fire in the drawing or ante-drawing rooms and enjoy a good whisky from one of the many local distilleries.

The castle has a fully equipped traditional kitchen, with modern appliances for self catering. Meals can be eaten in the kitchen or dining room.

Your hosts can help you choose from the best local produce: game, lamb and Highland beef from the estate; fish from nearby Macduff; and seasonal, organic vegetables from our neighbour.

Complimentary wifi is provided.
