A further 4 single beds are located at the top of the castle, suitable for children sharing. If this room is required, the castle's occupancy can be increased to 16 guests and a supplementary charge will apply.

THE KITCHEN AND BREAKFAST ROOM

The kitchen is a fully-working modern kitchen, giving every-day facilities, without losing its authentic charming design. Not only can this kitchen produce a simple two-some Highland breakfast, but can accommodate serving a full wedding party. The latest top-of-the range stove, dishwasher and other mod-cons make this a cook's dream.

The separate breakfast room adjoining the kitchen is fitted with full-size refectory table with seating for ten.

THE GREAT HALL

A magnificent hall which spans the entire width of the castle, furnished with traditional Scottish furniture, offering comfort and colour. An inlet log fireplace dominates one side of the Great Hall, whilst mahogany shelving displaying antique books borders the north side.

The dining area is offset, offering a unique dining experience of luxury and tradition, seating up to 16. One of the main features is the elaborate painted ceiling; this along with the various paintings and tapestries make a truly traditional Scottish hall, complemented with comfort, relaxing atmosphere and history. The Great Hall has under-floored heating.

Turrets, spiral stone staircases, stunning views and a magnificent Great Hall, which spans the width of the castle...these are just some of the things you can expect at Forter. The family history resonates from every corner of the castle. For an extra special treat, hire John Ramsay as your private chef to come in for a night or two; you won't be disappointed!
