About 20 years ago I stayed at Castle Kilravock near Inverness, and was very impressed...18 pounds a night then, but I see by their web site that inflation has taken its toll...22 pounds now! My question: They had a squash court then, which unfortunately I was unable to use on my prior stay. So my questions: 1) Has anyone stayed there of late? How was the experience? 2) Is the squash court serviceable? (I've e-mailed them, but no answer yet.) Regards, Brooke of NJFamily
I was there in November this year. I didn't stay but spent some time with the people now running it. It's gone all Christian and I know they have some sports facilities there but I can't be sure about the squash courts.
The garden is intact though (except for about a quarter of one tree that got hit by lightning!) and the grounds still beautiful.
You can contact them (according to the brochure they gave me) on www.kilravockcastle.com or their website is [email]; hope that helps.
Wow... Thank you so much for this info.
Just letting you know that the squash court at Kilravock can definately be used - its not at 'olympic' standard but you can still have a good game!! I worked at Kilravock (left in Jan 06) and whilst the organisation that rent the castle are Christian, B&B guests come from all over the world and certainly are made to feel welcome no matter their religious beliefs (or their squash-playing abilities!)
