Impressive castle sleeping 12 for exclusive use self catering celebrations or B&B, near the north west coast of Scotland

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Barcaldine Castle 'The Black Castle', Oban, Argyll, sleeps 2-12 in 6 bedrooms.

Barcaldine Castle, also known as the Black Castle, offers a fabulous self catering venue or luxury Bed & Breakfast with exclusive use for groups, in a fantastic setting near Oban.

The hiring of the whole castle offers a truly magnificent setting for birthdays, weddings or family get-togethers. Experience exclusive use of all 6 bedrooms and all amenities including the parlour, great hall and kitchen for a fantastic night or weekend self catering in a traditional 16th-century castle.

Set on the peaceful shores of Loch Creran on the West Coast of Scotland, Barcaldine Castle is one of only a few ancient castles on the Scottish mainland offering accommodation to guests. Set against breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains of Glencoe, Barcaldine Castle is a truly unique place to stay.

We are only a short 15 minute drive into the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland' Oban, where you can enjoy distillery tours, boat trips and taste some of the freshest seafood in Scotland. There's a lot to see and do and we can of course help you decide and make any reservations for you and your group.

Groups can hire the castle exclusively for a night in with your friends or family and enjoy the castle to yourselves for a special occasion or celebration, or just for a luxury get together. If you have a big birthday coming up, why not spend it steeped in history with a truly unbelievable atmosphere.

The Castle is also perfect for couples seeking a romantic break in the Scottish countryside as not only do we hire exclusive use but we also do a bed and breakfast rate per room meaning you can have one or two rooms for smaller parties and share the experience with other guests from all over the world!

Have a look at our Weddings page for more information on our Scottish Weddings; Barcaldine Castle is a truly magnificent setting for a fairytale wedding.
