Joanna’s Comments

One of the most beautiful houses in Scotland lies close to the Culloden Battlefield. Bonnie Prince Charlie requisitioned Culloden House as his battle headquarters before being defeated in 1746 in a bloody battle between the Scots and the English. The house is built on a grand scale with large rooms, Adam plasterwork, chandeliers and generous-sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Three of the most important links-style golf courses in Scotland – Royal Dornoch, Nairn and Castle Stuart – are located close-by. The house is situated at the very heart of the Highlands and is a perfect base from which to explore the many castles, distilleries and landmarks in the area. The Condé Nast Traveler Gold List awarded Culloden House the highest score for service in Scotland for 2011, and voted it the favorite Scottish property for the last three years in its Readers’ Choice Awards.

Culloden House’s head chef, Michael Simpson, won the Scottish Chef of the Year award at the Scottish Hotel Awards, April 2013.

Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Award for No. 1 Hotel in the British Isles for service, No. 1 in Europe and No. 11 in the world

CULLODEN BATTLEFIELD: The new visitors' center brings to life the cruel Battle of Culloden fought in 1746. Many Highlanders were killed in the last attempt at putting Bonnie Prince Charlie on the throne and defeating the English. The English troops under the Duke of Cumberland "Butcher Cumberland", cousin of George I, won the day, and the Highland way of life was finished forever. Scotland has been part of the United Kingdom ever since. Bonnie Prince Charlie escaped to the Isle of Skye with the help of Flora MacDonald and died a sad alcoholic in Rome.

CAWDOR CASTLE: This is a stunning Highland castle with a history going back to Macbeth and Shakespeare. The Thanes of Cawdor still live at the castle, which dates back to the 13th-century. The exterior of the castle is forbidding and fortress-like, but the interior is warm and comfortable with some beautiful furniture and paintings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. The current Lady Cawdor has a great sense of style and decoration. The gardens are also worth a visit, with beautiful walks though woods covered in wildflowers.

JOHNSON'S OF ELGIN: One of the few cashmere factories left in Scotland. Take a tour of the factory, which is fascinating and makes one realize why cashmere comes at such a price. There is a fabulous shop with clothes and furnishings that should not be missed.

GLEN ORD DISTILLERY: One of the many distilleries in the area known as the "Whisky Trail." One can take a full tour showing how single-malt whisky is made and end with a whisky tasting.

LOCH NESS: This is the deepest lake in Scotland and famous for the "Loch Ness Monster." Even though many of the theories have been dismissed, one cannot help scouring the surface of the water for a sight of "Nessie." One can take day trips by boat on the Loch or explore by car. This is one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland.

URQUHART CASTLE: This is a romantic ruin on the shores of Loch Ness. The castle was destroyed by the Highlanders so that it would not fall into the hands of the English. It provides one of the great photographic opportunities when driving along the Loch.

DUNROBIN CASTLE: Home of the dukes of Sutherland, the castle has a stunning position right on the sea. Dating from the 13th century, it houses a fine collection of furniture, tapestries and Old Master paintings. There is a formal garden, and there are daily falconry displays in the high season.

GOLF: Some of the top golf courses in Scotland are in the area, and Culloden can arrange tee times at Royal Dornoch, Nairn and Castle Stuart.  In 2016, Castle Stuart will again host the Scottish Open tournament.
