Dunrobin Castle - Scotland

Visit the castle (Continued)


In Scots Gaelic, the word clan means family or children. Dunrobin Castle, seat of Clan Sutherland, is not only a great visit as part of a family holiday in the north of Scotland, but an excellent family day out.

Dunrobin Castle gives you the opportunity to experience some of the greatest history, culture and scenery anywhere in the UK. As part of a refreshing family holiday adventure at a great value price, you need look no further than Dunrobin Castle.

The coast of east Sutherland is also studded with a variety of superb sandy beaches with long golden sands. So - with access to a famous and great castle, activity days and wonderful scenery, the coast offers a great day out for you and your family.


Dunrobin Castle has many stairways and steps on all levels that could cause difficulties to our less able visitor.

Wheel chair access can be arranged to the Gardens.

Dunrobin Castle has been the seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland since the 13th century and spans more than 700 years of Scottish history.
