Forter Castle


Forter castle was built in 1560 and destroyed in 1640. It was lovingly restored in the late 1980’s.

The castle is located in the beautiful Scottish Highlands about 1.5hr drive from Edinburgh airport and on route to the Cairngorm national park. You’ll love Forter Castle because of the elegant interiors, cosiness, high ceilings, views, onsite chapel perfect for weddings and the amazing location.

Forter castle is excellent for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).


The space has been beautifully restored and decorated by internationally acclaimed owner and designer Katharine Pooley.

The internal areas have been designed to maximise comfort whilst retaining a traditional Scottish flair in keeping with a home originally built in 1560.


The castle has a stone spiral staircase which gives access to each bedroom over five floors.


Forter castle is the perfect location for an intimate highland wedding. The castle has its very own unique chapel on site and has many years of experience in hosting weddings. Our luxury Scottish Castle to hire for weddings and other occasions makes the perfect setting for your special day.
