Castle Stuart

Built in 1625 by James Stuart, 3rd Earl of Moray, Castle Stuart is located 2 miles (3 km) north northeast of Balloch and 5 miles (8 km) northeast of Inverness, overlooking the Moray Firth to the north and the battlefield of Culloden Moor to the south. A Stuart family home, Castle Stuart is an impressive main block with towers to the south. It was rebuilt in 1869 although quickly was left to ruin thereafter, resulting in the collapse of the main roof. Bought by Canadian Scots descendants, it is now run as a hotel. There are guided tours available of the principal rooms of the castle including the Jacobean dining room, the oak-panelled drawing room, great hall and secret billiard room.
