Nestled in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Candacraig is an inspiring, exclusive retreat. Steeped in history and surrounded by the wild beauty of the Cairngorms, our breathtaking baronial mansion is the perfect place to host your event.

Originally built in the 17th century, Candacraig House was enlarged in the Scottish baronial style with its pepper pot turrets and crow stepped dormer windows in 1836. It has been extended several times over the years and was reconstructed in 1955 retaining its Scottish style. The current owners Lynne and Marc Lino bought the property from Billy Connolly a famous comedian/actor and have since placed considerable investment into this stunning property.

Guests enjoy exclusive use offering 12 bedrooms, an impressive formal Dining Room, Drawing Room, Games/Billiard Room, and a Whisky Library that through many years of collecting provides a leading selection of single malts. We then also have further accommodation in an Upper Villa, Lower Villa and neighboring cottage. Total of 15 bedrooms and in total 3 rooms convert from king to twin so we can accommodate mainly in single occupancy and one twin occupancy.

Outdoors, guests have full access to 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns, including a large Victorian walled garden, a lochan fed by the celebrated River Don and a woodland bonfire area - a very special spot to enjoy a warm drink by the fire.
Exploring the lavish grounds you will find one magical setting after another - exclusively yours to enjoy during your stay - A Remarkable Setting.
