The Independent on Sunday

In the centre of Banffshire, known for its Whisky Distilleries, Fishing, Castles and some of the most outstanding coastline in the world, you will find Castle of Park located in 40 acres of it’s private grounds and gardens. The owners have an eclectic collection of art and antiques and the house is still the main family home of the Campbell Wilson Clan.

The interior of the 16th Century Castle is adorned with an eclectic collection of art and antiques, the previous Laird was an Art Dealer and his collection is very much part of what makes the Castle so special. The house is still the main family home of the Campbell Wilsons, who move to a service wing when there are guests and are very happy to personally discuss the history of the Castle.

There are plenty of reception rooms for guests to escape to, including the impressive Great Hall, with it’s distinctive Painted Ceiling, the Drawing Room, the Billiards Room, the Chapel and the Vaulted Dining Room.

In the daytime you can wander the grounds, play croquet or badminton and in the evening enjoy a local whisky in front of a roaring fire. The Estate has it’s own fold of Highland Cows and a small muster of Peacocks.

There is an endless pool for swimming and an external Pavilion that can be used for games on a wet day or for meetings, events or parties.


An amazing experience in beautiful surroundings, can't wait to go back soon.
This is truly a gem of a place to stay and I hope we get the chance to visit again!
It was beyond words and every minute spent there was a trip back in history.

We felt like royalty for a couple of days.
Our daughter is talented in art and design, and she spent our entire stay in awe of all the art.

Would recommend Castle of Park to anyone wanting to get away from it all.
The understatement of the year is that ‘there is a good art collection’ It was like living in a musuem!
If you want the experience of staying at a real Scottish Castle.
