In a pretty spot on the banks of Loch Ness, Aldourie Castle, an attractive but muscular baronial mansion of two and three storeys, dates from 1853 and was designed by David Bryce. It was extended in 1903 by Sir Robert Lorimer. The building incorporates a 17th-century castle with a round tower, turrets and a parapet.
  This was a property of the Mackintoshes in the 17th century, and Donald Mackintosh of Aldourie is mentioned in 1661. The property went to the Barbours by 1704 when John Barbour of Aldourie is on record. It later passed to the Frasers, later Fraser-Tytler, who held it in the 19th century, then went to the Grants. It was sold in 2003 and has been renovated, and stands in 500 acres of gardens, parkland and woodlands.
  The castle is said to be haunted by a ‘Grey Lady’.
