Scottish Highland Castle

Dec 11, 2015 | Where To Fish

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 16.44.30Breathtakingly wild, with stunning views and a most welcoming atmosphere with all the quirks and idiosyncrasies of a historic castle.

Erchless Castle was built in the thirteenth century and is the home of Clan Chisholm. The castle sleeps a maximum 16 people, and has six principal bedrooms, with four doubles, including two four posters, and two twin rooms. There is also a small dressing room with a single bed adjacent to one of the double rooms, and a dormitory with three single beds.

The castle possesses what is probably one of the biggest baths in the Highlands – a complete joy to sink into after a long day on the hill. The owners like cotton sheets, fluffy towels and feather duvets, so please let them know if you have any allergies.


The estate consists of 12,000 acres, the highest point being the Phollain at 855 metres. Red deer, stag and hind stalking are available in season and the estate has two beats (4 rods per beat) on the River Glass.

ErchlessCastle accommodation is let on a self-catering basis and have contact numbers for local chefs and caterers if required. The castle is available from £1,750 per week

The comfortable, spacious Erchless Cottage sleeps six people and is ideally situated for hillwalking, fishing and visiting Loch Ness, or just curling up in a comfortable chair beside the log burner with a book and a glass of wine.

Fishing, per beat per week, and stalking are available in season on the estate. There are two four rod beats available – contact Tom Carter at FishPal on 01573 470612.
