CASTLE AND GARDENS CLOSED |reopening 28th March 2024
In 2014, Inveraray Castle was the chosen location for episode one of Great Estates Scotland.
This four-part series took an in-depth look at the workings of some of Scotland’s most magnificent country estates through the eyes of the owners, the ghillies, the gardeners and the housekeepers, not forgetting the paying guests who frequent these stunning country estates. The series, filmed entirely in Scotland, told the fascinating stories behind these magnificent buildings.
For more than 500 years, Inveraray Castle has housed the chieftain of one of the world’s best-known family clans, the Clan Campbell. It is now the home to the 13th Duke of Argyll, His Grace Torquhil Ian Campbell, and his young family. Visited by thousands every year, the castle was the stand-in for “Duneagle” in the “Downton Abbey” Christmas episode.
