Castle Kilravock

by NJFamily Online Now Nov 26, 2003 at 5:58 AM

About 20 years ago I stayed at Castle Kilravock near Inverness, and was very impressed...18 pounds a night then, but I see by their web site that inflation has taken its toll...22 pounds now! My question: They had a squash court then, which unfortunately I was unable to use on my prior stay. So my questions: 1) Has anyone stayed there of late? How was the experience? 2) Is the squash court serviceable? (I've e-mailed them, but no answer yet.) Regards, Brooke of NJFamily

    I was there in November this year. I didn't stay but spent some time with the people now running it. It's gone all Christian and I know they have some sports facilities there but I can't be sure about the squash courts.
    The garden is intact though (except for about a quarter of one tree that got hit by lightning!) and the grounds still beautiful.
    You can contact them (according to the brochure they gave me) on or their website is; hope that helps.
    Cheers, Ian

    Just letting you know that the squash court at Kilravock can definately be used - its not at 'olympic' standard but you can still have a good game!! I worked at Kilravock (left in Jan 06) and whilst the organisation that rent the castle are Christian, B&B guests come from all over the world and certainly are made to feel welcome no matter their religious beliefs (or their squash-playing abilities!)
