Any castles with accomodations between Inverness and Oban?

Planning to spend a few days around the area of Inverness and Oban. We'd like to spend one night in a castle. I know Stuart Castle is there but it's a bit pricey. Maybe they all are but I thought I put the question out there to see if there are any suggestions? We'll be in the area the last week of June.

Check out Barcaldine Castle, it isn't very far from Oban.

None of the castle accomodations are cheap, but this one isn't as expensive as Stuart Castle.

I just thought of one inexpensive castle stay, Carbisdale Castle is a Hostel. It is about an hour and a half north of Inverness.

Thanks, I had looked at Barcaldine Castle but it seems every room has a king size bed and we need one room with twin beds.

I checked out Glengarry too. It's on my short list I sent to my other travelers to check out. Has anyone stayed at the Mansfield? It's north of Inverness. I wonder if it's too far away from where we want to visit or is it worth it to spend 1 night there and then travel south for our site seeing days and find a b&b to stay in for the next couple of nights?

Tulloch Castle at Dingwalll

Inverlochy at Fort William (off the scale for expensive)

Bunchrew Castle at Beauly

There are others, but not, I fear, in the area.
