Nestled in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Candacraig is an inspiring, exclusive retreat and a wonderful placwe to create some festive memories or see in the New Year. Steeped in history and surrounded by the wild beauty of the Cairngorms in the Scottish Highlands.
Originally built in the 17th century, Candacraig House was enlarged in the Scottish baronial style with its pepper pot turrets and crow stepped dormer windows in 1836. It has been extended several times over the years and was reconstructed in 1955 retaining its Scottish style. The current owners Lynne & Marc Lino bought the property last year from Billy Connolly a famous comedian/actor and have since placed considerable investment into this stunning property.
Guests enjoy exclusive use offering 12 bedrooms, an impressive formal Dining Room, Drawing Room, Games/Billiard Room, and a Whisky Library that through many years of collecting provides a leading selection of single malts.
Outdoors, guests have full access to 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns, including a large Victorian walled garden, a lochan fed by the celebrated River Don and a woodland bonfire area – a very special spot to enjoy a warm drink by the fire.
Exploring the lavish grounds you will find one magical setting after another – exclusively yours to enjoy during your stay. For the Festive period we can assist in arraning any entertainment and catering or for a rare opportunity guests can self-cater in this stunning Castle.
