The House

"Princes past and present
have enjoyed the ambience
and hospitality of the elegant
Palladian mansion..."
Wendy Black
Elegant Hotels of Europe

Culloden House is a Grade A listed mansion with parts of it dating back to its medieval origins.

Adam Lounge
The house features a wonderfully comforable drawing room with magnificent Adam plasterwork, chandeliers, and a large open fire for you to enjoy, yet ease and unpretending luxury prevails.

Library Bar
Relax in our cozy bar with its leather seatings and tall windows overlooking the lawn. See if your ancestors are listed in the "Prisoners of '46".  Sip rare and wonderful whiskys.

You can choose to dine in our Adams Dining Room or privately in our elegant Morning Room.

Forbes Room
Our handsome baronial Forbes Room with its beamed and chandeliered ceiling, Royal Stuart tartan drapes, rich oak paneling and marbled fireplace adds a special feel to your private event.

Garden Mansion
This white mansion has spacious bedrooms and baths and is located next to the walled garden. The self-contained house includes four double ensuite bedrooms and a living area.

The Gardens & Grounds

Upon entering the gates, first your eye is caught by the beautiful house and the sweeping lawn.

Then you may notice the towering trees circling the drive.

In the 18th century, it was the fashion to grow an arboreteum of trees newly discovered by plant hunters.  300 years later seeds collected while exploring China and the Americas have grown into the magnificent specimen trees before you.

The 40-acre estate includes for your pleasure seasonal bluebell and rhododendron walks, open parkland, bicycle paths into Culloden forest, a croquet lawn, tennis court, duck pond, and a small photogenic herd of shaggy-haired Highland cattle.

Our four-acre 18th century walled garden is designed for your enjoyment from early spring flowering bulbs through autumn orchard fruits.  Six years ago it received a stylish new design by Michael Innes, the former Gardens Advisor for the National Trust of Scotland.  

The Rooms

Twenty-eight charming bedrooms each uniquely decorated in understated comfort - your private domain with room service just a call away. Some of our spacious rooms have delightful features such as crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces. Combine the luxury of a romantically furnished room with all the modern comforts you need and you won't want to leave.
