Nestled In The Heart of The Scottish Highlands, Candacraig Is An Inspiring, Exclusive Retreat

Jean , 214-350-6220 x9108

Nestled in the heart of the Scottish Highlands we offer the perfect panoramic.

Candacraig, an exclusive Highland retreat nestled amidst the rugged beauty of the Cairngorms, offers a luxurious escape into Scotland’s rich history and natural splendour. Dating back to the 17th century and enlarged in 1836 by the same architect responsible for Balmoral Castle, Candacraig embodies Scottish elegance and heritage.

Set within 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns, Candacraig invites guests to unwind in peaceful natural surroundings while enjoying easy access to some of Scotland’s most remarkable sights and experiences. To the West lies the illustrious Balmoral Castle, the King’s own Highland retreat, while the picturesque route North leads to the renowned whisky distilleries of the Spey Valley.

With its sensational location in the heart of the Cairngorms, yet just an hour’s journey from Aberdeen and Inverness, Candacraig offers exceptional hospitality in a truly remarkable setting. The property has undergone extensive interior redesign, boasting modern amenities such as an environmentally friendly biomass heating system and a magnificent chef’s kitchen.

Guests at Candacraig enjoy the epitome of luxury with 12 ensuite bedrooms, including an impressive formal Dining Room, Drawing Room, and Games/Billiard Room complete with a full-size snooker table. A favourite among guests is the Whisky Library, where connoisseurs can sample Scotland’s finest spirits in an intimate setting.

Outdoors, the estate offers a plethora of enchanting spaces to explore, including a large Victorian walled garden adorned with beautiful flowers and trees, a tranquil lochan fed by the celebrated River Don, and a woodland bonfire area – the perfect spot to savour a drink by the fire under the starlit sky.
