Golf course...a couple of good three wood drives away from the Cawdor Village Bed and Breakfast's front door...what else is there left to say!
Cawdor Castle dates from the late 14th century, built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. An ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly tree. Still the home of the Cawdor family, Cawdor Castle has a history extending to Macbeth.
The historic 15th-century castle was once the home of Thane of Cawdor, a title which was mentioned in Shakespeare's Macbeth. There are beautiful gardens and the site has such a rich history, it's a must-see.
“Local theatre and cinema beside the River Ness. Looking to open soon after lockdown.”
“A firm favourite. If you are here in the summer months, try and get a table upstairs on the terrace.”
“This is an excellent visit for those of all ages, the exhibitions and information provide make for an interesting day and it's amazing to explore the whole area. If you're lucky you may spot dolphins out to sea from the walls of the Fort!”
“They have a great exhibition here and it is a lovely walk around the battlefield.”
Point of Interest
“The current Inverness Castle dates from 1836, and it currently houses Inverness Sheriff Court. Unfortunately, most of the castle is closed to the public, but the north tower is accessible as a viewpoint, which offers amazing 360° views of Inverness and the surrounding area. Definitely worth a visit - but you should book your slot in advance. Don't just turn up as you may be disappointed if it's busy. Pay a visit to Flora MacDonald's statue at the front of the castle. Flora is famous for helping Bonnie Prince Charlie evade government troops after the Battle of Culloden in April 1746. They escaped by boat 'over the sea to Skye' and the famous Skye Boat Song was penned to recall the journey. Flora was arrested soon after and taken to the Tower of London, but released after an amnesty was agreed. The court house is moving to a new building in late 2020, and there are plans to open up the castle fully as a visitor attraction. ”
