“Amazing property ! We had such a blast !!”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The property was extremely well appointed. With all the charm of a Scottish castle, yet completely modern in its amenities. Leather bound sofas,rich tapestry and fireplaces on one hand and two dishwashers and three refrigerators on the other : )

The service was fantastic. Deirdre was most helpful. On all things big and small. The only slight inconvenience was having to wire transfer the money since they don't accept credit cards online.

The location was wonderful for walks, trails and distillery visits. Or just to stay in the castle and enjoy the view. A car is needed however, to get about and fetch daily provisions.

All in all, as a group of 12 friends, despite being somewhat spoilt travellers, we had a blast. We could not have asked for more !

“Completely stunning in every way!”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. Diedra was amazing. She helped with everything, communication was spot on and the group felt very well taken care of. The castle....well it was just luxury, beautiful, comfortable and a dream. Every detail was well thought out. The beauty and privacy of the property was like nothing we have ever had before.
Just being there makes you want to celebrate life and step away from the normal day to day grind. However, if you need to be in the grind, there was great internet and an office work out of. This was a huge, modern, luxury house in a castle shell. With tons of amazing local activities to keep the group busy.
Highly recommend to anyone.

I am not one to write lengthy detailed reviews, revisiting everything from linen thread counts to scented soaps in the bathrooms. Let me just that having traveled throughout the world, and having rented a large number of "fancy" properties, I have never experienced the combination of high quality physical plant, generosity of spirit of hosts, and breathtaking location as Glentruim Castle offers. Deirdre and Akkie are the most thoughtful, pleasant hosts we have ever encountered. Our group of 4 adults and 5 teenagers were made to feel as though we were visiting our favorite cousins from the moment we arrived. Like any great hosts though, they never hovered , never seemed to be around unless you need them. They had anticipated every possible need.

The home and grounds are simply astounding. A classic old structure updated with every possible modern convenience, from heated tile floors, complete wifi coverage throughout, to Sonos sound system in every room, and the newest kitchen appliances, even the pickiest person should be satisfied. And everything was spotlessly clean.

I'm afraid that every future trip will come up short compared to our stay at Glentruim. I guess we'll just have to keep going back!

“Without a doubt, the experience of a lifetime”

Myself and 12 friends hired the newly refurbished Glentruim Castle for a 5 day get away to celebrate my 30th birthday. We were excited about the trip and had high hopes. Deirdre and Alex managed to blow us away with their attention to detail and a wonderfully warm welcome. Indeed it was a pleasure conversing over the months leading up to our trip. Deirdre made it much easier for me to coordinate a large party.

The castle itself is comparable to any fine country house however there are also all manner of creature comforts and modern and premium features sensitively and thoughtfully incorporated. From enjoying the friendly bar area, relaxing in the resplendent drawing room or hunkering down for an evening in the cosy smoking room with a glass of single malt (Dalwhinnie is a must for that) Glentruim offers a space for any occasion.

We also enjoyed some of the more modern luxuries such as a huge drop down screen and pool table in the orangery, the awesome sound system in the cinema, and the well equipped and sociable kitchen.

We catered for ourselves and stocked the bar with plenty of drink but even with 13 people, it never felt cramped or busy. I could always find a moment of peace both inside and out and return to the social activities as my leisure.

The grounds of the castle and surrounding areas are breathtaking. It's well worth a walk to explore the estate grounds. The view point on top of the hill past the mausoleum and picnic area provided a great place to watch the sun rise. The river was a nice little walk too and star gazing on a clear night is truly magical.

The rooms are without fault in every way. Comfortable, spacious and homely. We also enjoyed the many original records and artefacts that paint a real history if Glentruim and the MacPhearson's who lived there.

Deirdre; thank you most sincerely for everything. I know that everybody is waxing lyrical about our trip and in particular the castle. We will certainly be sharing our experiences and recommendations to anyone who will listen. Congratulations on such a beautiful venue. I know you must both be incredibly proud and the hard work and commitment to this wonderful place is evident throughout.

I've totally fallen in love with both Glentruim and the Cairngorns too. Without a doubt we will be back.

I had the honor of being invited to stay at Glentruim Castle for 3 nights for a wedding. The castle was breath taking and the setting also. Glentruim has recently been renovated to a very high standard. It has a perfect balance of discreet high tech living combined with luxurious and sophisticated decor. Lovely to see a place finished to such a great standard without taking away from the original character of the place.

The staff there over the course of the weekend were excellent and the planning of the wedding was executed with no stress or fluster, but with style and smiles putting all at ease.

I would love to come back and visit again at some point as this is definitely a place you want to stay more than once.

Thank you for your very kind review. We at Glentruim feel privileged to host such a special occasion as a wedding and we aim to more than fulfil everyone's expectations, by offering a beautifully presented venue and true Highland hospitality. We are therefore delighted that we have once again succeeded. You would be more than welcome to visit us again and become part of our Glentruim family. Kindest regards.
