Balintore Castle is situated in Glen Quharity: a small and totally unspoiled Angus Glen, at the foothills of the Grampians, and just a few miles from the Cairngorms National Park. It offers direct access to hill walking, mountain biking, bird-watching and shooting.
The castle can be easily found: just enter the postcode DD8 5JS into a SATNAV. The last few miles of your drive will be on single track road, so please take care and reduce your speed on blind bends. Do not use the east drive (through the gate lodges) to approach the castle as the track is very rough. Instead, use the west drive which starts by a large barn. There is a slate sign at this location marked "Balintore Castle".
