Dunrobin Castle

Updated 10/11/2013

Fodor's Review

The Scottish home of the dukes of Sutherland is flamboyant Dunrobin Castle, an ancient seat developed by the first duke into a 19th-century white-turreted behemoth. As well as lavish interiors, there are falconry demonstrations and Versailles-inspired gardens. Trains so fascinated the duke that he built his own railroad in the park and staffed it with his servants.

Most scenic castle in Scotland

Not your average drab castle, Dunrobin is to Scotland what Neuschwanstein is to Germany. It is certainly worth a trip into the highlands to see this beautiful structure in its scenic surroundings. There is even a marvelous little natural history museum on the premises that was gives a new meaning to travel "mementos."
