About Tulloch Castle

Set in the majestic Scottish Highlands, Tulloch Castle Hotel is a 16th-century former tower house situated upon the hills of the historical town of Dingwall. The hotel boasts breathtaking views of Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle. A stay in this Scottish Highland castle is the perfect place for an unforgettable experience, whether you enjoy the local cuisine at Turrets Restaurant, sit back and relax in front of one of the grand log fires, or explore the beautiful surroundings.

Our history

built by Norseman

The castle’s fortunes have changed many times over the course of its rich history. In the 12th century, it is believed that Norsemen may have built Tulloch Castle. However, the first recorded ownership of the castle can be traced to the Bayne family in the 16th century, before the castle was inherited by the Davidson family, for which Tulloch Castle is known as the legendary birthplace of Clan Davidson. Today, the castle retains many of its original features, including the ancient Dungeon, beautiful stained glass windows, an ornate staircase, the 250-year old panelled Great Hall, and a secret tunnel from the basement of the Castle across town to the ancient Dingwall Castle.
