Candacraig – Strathdon, Scotland
Ever wanted to live in your very own fairy tale castle? Well, now’s your chance. Candacraig can be your Sleeping Beauty-worthy home for the weekend, week – or however long you’d like to stay. The Scottish castle dates back to the 17th century and is immaculately preserved, with wood-panelled rooms, open fires and a choice of 12 opulent bedrooms, individually decorated and with private bathrooms. There’s also the impressive formal dining room, beautiful drawing room, and exquisite whisky library to enjoy, all helmed by Candacraig’s resident House Manager, who will look after you during your stay along with a full housekeeping and catering staff, including a private chef. Outside, there are 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns, plus a glorious Victorian walled garden, a woodland bonfire area and a private stretch of the River Don to cast your fishing line. It’s all set within the rugged and picturesque Cairngorms National Park, with Balmoral to the west and the Spey Valley – home to distilleries galore – to explore to the north.
