Ardverikie – the most beautiful place in the world

Ardverikie is one of the most spectacular and visually stunning private estates in Scotland, nestling in the very heart of the Highlands.

From its Victorian roots as a traditional Highland sporting Estate, Ardverikie has been developed into a commercially successful enterprise, owned and run by the descendants of its original founder, with business activities covering holiday cottages, weddings, filming, forestry, farming, sporting, deer management and generating electricity through hydro electric power.

As a visitor to the Estate, you can enjoy the privilege of walking in unspoilt wilderness, dense forests and sandy lochs where the ever changing weather will connect you close to the landscape before you retreat home into one of our cosy self catering cottages.

Sleeping from 3 to 13 people in a variety of locations around the Estate we have properties to suit all sizes of group and budget. Those people booking our cottages also enjoy the unique privilege of being able to book exclusive tours of the main reception rooms of Ardverikie Castle to see inside a family home which has remained largely untouched  since it was built in the nineteenth century as the ultimate expression of Victorian Gothic splendour.

Through a neighbouring independent business Highland All-Terrain both cottage guests and visitors can book Quad Bike and Land-Rover treks, safaris and expeditions of differing lengths and challenges across the Estate, along with other outdoor activities such as Archery and Clay Pigeon Shooting.

All of this combines to make Ardverikie a very sought after Wedding Venue.  The public rooms in Ardverikie Castle are available for your ceremony, and there are ample cottages to book throughout the estate for either the weekend celebration itself or for pre-wedding groups and get-togethers.

The main rooms and indeed the wider estate will be familiar to many viewers of film and TV as a much-used location – in particular for BBC TV’s long running comedy drama “Monarch of the Glen” which as “Glenbogle” was filmed almost entirely on the Estate – and Ardverikie has also had starring roles in “Mrs Brown”, “Outlander” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”.
