Description

Staying at this celebrated castle allows you to experience centuries of history in comfort and style, which those before you like Robert the Bruce could only imagine.

This is one of Scotland’s great castles and dates back to the 13th century, with five towers, each built and named after one of the five families who owned it in succession; of which one tower is now available to let for family and group holidays within easy drive of Aberdeen and the Moray Firth coastline.

The letting apartment was refurbished in 2015 and comfortably accommodates a group of 16 guests, spread over four floors accessed via steep central turnpike stairs. All the rooms have an old school charm and castle-like feel, and there is never any doubt you are staying in a real castle. Set amidst open parkland, with a loch and beautiful mature gardens, which all provide beautiful spaces for short or long walks in the country. This is one of the great castles to stay in Scotland.

  • Reception Rooms
    Set over 5 floors, the impressive  receptions rooms are to be found on the 2nd floor of this tower, which is accessed via the turnpike stairs. The large elegant drawing room forms an L-shaped room, with windows overlooking to the front lawn of the castle and to the other side, the inner courtyard. With comfortable sofas and armchairs, there are period antiques and fine pictures throughout. Next door is a snug area, which is a library, which is ideal for children to play in peace and quiet or to get away for a moment to read the paper in your own space.

    Set beside the drawing room on the second floor can be found the dining room, which is a very elegant room, with ornate ceiling work and tall windows with impressive curtains. The fine mahogany table and chairs seats everyone in great style and is ideal for a fine feast or special occasion meal.

    Kitchen
    The well equipped kitchen is next door, which was modernised in 2015, is more modest in scale and style, but is adequate for the needs of the group size. There is everything you would expect with an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and upright fridge freezer.

    ACCESSIBILITY
    The turnpike stairs are steep running over 4 floors, which means children and guests with walking difficulties should take extra care.

The Castle was very well equipped, spacious and beautifully furnished.The bedrooms were warm and very comfortable. There were 13 of us and we found that everything worked so very well for us. We had a marvellous time and all agreed that our time at the castle had been very special. Thank you.

The staff enjoyed welcoming you and your family and hope to welcome you again soon

I received every possible advice and information and there was excellent communication between Scotts and the Castle.I found every member of staff courteous and friendly and delighted that we had such a lovely holiday.I would recommend this agency to my friends as a first rate organization.

We loved helping you find somewhere special for your milestone birthday and delighted to hear it was such a success!
