Located in Dingwall, some 30 minutes from Inverness, Tulloch Castle dates from the 12th Century, when first the Bains and later the Clan Davidson laid claim to its lands. Like its lively history, the Castle's fortunes have changed many times. Now, it is once again a magnificent fortress, with a ready welcome for travelers. When you arrive, you will be met with Tulloch’s countless period features including the 250-year old paneled Great Hall. As you enter the magnificent hallways you will pass by painstakingly restored original fireplaces and ceilings. The castle accommodates 20 en-suite well appointed bedrooms all with their own unique character and charm. The hotel has an onsite restaurant where only the best Highland produce is freshly prepared for you by the chefs. Round off the evening relaxing in front of a roaring log fire with a fine Scottish Malt from the vast selection in the Green Lady Bar.
Each of the spacious bedrooms has its own unique character and charm - and this is supplemented by tastefully designed private bathrooms, with bath and shower, television and tea and coffee making facilities. From some of the rooms, you will enjoy stunning views over Dingwall to the haunting Black Isle.

Elegant candlesticks, individually designed chairs, subtle lighting - all make dining in the hotel an experience to be repeated time and time again. The castle's top chef takes full advantage of nature's abundant harvest from nearby sea, lochs, rivers and the rich local farmland and manages to combine simplicity with sophistication to ensure that you enjoy the very best of Highland cuisine.
