The grand dining Rroom is furnished with antiques, and at the centre is a dining table to seat 14, with full services of china, cutlery, glassware and silver.

Next to the dining room is the billiard room, which features a full-sized table, and offers an enjoyable place to retire after a meal.


There is a traditional farmhouse style kitchen equipped with a 4-oven Aga, dishwasher, microwave, food processor and an additional gas cooker. Adjoining the kitchen is a large cool larder with a fridge freezer. A separate laundry has a washing machine, drier and an ironing board.

For more informal dining, the kitchen has a large dining table seating up to 12 people.


The team at Castle Lachlan can arrange catering for a night, or even your whole stay, should you wish to relax and let someone else prepare your food.

History

Clan Maclachlan has called this area of Argyll 'home' since the 13th century. The original castle was replaced in the 15th century with the old Castle Lachlan, which now stands in ruins.



The new Castle Lachlan, which lies about a ten-minute walk away from the ruinous old Castle Lachlan, is the current seat of Clan Maclachlan. It was first built in 1790, with the construction overseen by Donald Maclachlan. The new house was first built in the Queen Anne style, then later, at the end of the 19th century, the "castle" was transformed into the Scottish Baronial house that stands today.

Drimdarroch Cottage

Nestled away in the Lachlan estate is this recently renovated 4-bedroom self-catering holiday cottage, which sleeps up to 8 people, and can be booked together with the castle, or on its own.



The farmhouse-style kitchen is well equipped and enables guests to cook for groups with ease. The large living room has a dining area with ample space for groups of 8, and is separated from the open-plan kitchen by a breakfast bar.



With panoramic views over Loch Fyne, the cottage is in the perfect location for groups who love all things outdoors.

Leisure

Located in Argyll, Castle Lachlan is a great base from which to explore both Highland and Lowland Scotland. Hiking, fishing, golf, deer stalking and sailing are just a small selection of the vast array of activities available in the surrounding area - plenty to keep your family busy!
