Step back in time at Candacraig House. Steeped in history, this 17th-century Scottish baronial-style manor sits on 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns. Set among Britain’s largest national park, the Cairngorms, the area contains five of the six highest mountains in Scotland. Candacraig is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the fresh Highland air!

Outdoors, the manor offers a wide array of amenities that are sure to keep all of your guests happy. The estate features an outdoor bonfire area, which is perfect place for a nightcap, and a walled, 3-acre Victorian-style garden, offering an alternative to the formal dining room. The property’s private loch is fed by the River Don, which offers excellent fishing opportunities among rolling hills.

Indoors, the tastefully-modernized interiors include 12 luxury bedrooms, a magnificent chef’s kitchen, an elegant Tartan dining room, a drawing room and a billiard/games room, as well as a whisky library featuring a well-stocked collection of single malts and Scottish gins.

Of course, a true Scottish experience would not be complete without indulging in some great Highland hospitality. Candacraig’s resident House Manager and Night Porter will be on hand to assist throughout your stay, along with a full housekeeping and catering staff. Available on request, a butler service can also be arranged for larger events.

Guests will also enjoy the services of Candacraig’s own private chef and full dining staff to present the finest cuisine, sourced from the freshest local ingredients from across Scotland and catered to your group’s specific tastes.
