Castle with Great Hall, near Stirling

This sixteenth century castle of character, is ideally situated between Edinburgh and Glasgow, near the historic site of the battle of Bannockburn and Stirling Castle.

Sited on an open plain, this traditional manor house was built in 1528 directly beside the tower house of 1449, which it shares a communal courtyard. Both venues were restored in the late 20th century and maintain their original charm and character as a family home. They can be booked separately or combined for a larger group. Please note that this is not the “hotel version” of a castle with tartan carpets and plastic swords on the wall. Here you will be stepping back in time, and what you may lose in luxury, you gain by being in an authentic castle. The manor house sleeps 8 adults and 2 children, (next door to the original tower of 1449, which is also available to let separately or combined on a self-catering basis for up to 4 people).  With distinctive ground floor vaulted rooms and an impressive first floor Great Hall, this has a feel of an authentic medieval castle. With genuine stone walls, doors that don’t fit, corridors with drafts, there is everything you would expect in a genuine old castle. Please note that turnpike stairs may not be suitable for the young and less mobile. A limited amount of events and weddings can take place here. The castle has to be booked on a normal self-catering basis, with numbers above the capacity having a facility fee applicable, up to the maximum of 30 people only.

The great hall is an amazing space for larger groups to celebrate together inIf you have a special event to celebrate this could be the perfect place to host itThe dining room seats 8 under stone vaulted ceilingsVaulted ceilings in the ground floor kitchen

Reception rooms

On entering the castle via the arched door you immediately notice the stone walled corridor, which leads to the stone turnpike stairs. At ground level there is access to the kitchen/dining area, dining room and sitting room, which are all vaulted rooms. The sitting room is a simply furnished stone-clad vaulted room with huge character, with the motto “a man can achieve what he dreams” writ large on a beam across the ceiling. On the first floor is the Great Hall, which is a large space that is perfect for hosting events and small weddings. The main feature of the room is the large stone inglenook fireplace, along with the wooden floors and ceiling. The walls are adorned with tapestries, swords and more modern pictures, giving this room an eclectic look of the old and the new combined.

Kitchen / Dining

At ground level there is access to the kitchen/dining area and dining room, which are all vaulted rooms. At the end of the corridor is the kitchen, with the simply furnished cooking area with electric cooker under one of the low arches, with a kitchen table that can seat up to 8 people. Next door is the dining room, again in a stone-clad vaulted room, which also can seat up to 8 people. On the first floor is the Great Hall, which is a large space that is perfect for hosting events and small weddings. When tables are placed in this room for dining, the dining capacity is for up to 30 people. A small galley kitchen is next door for storage and easier washing-up if required.

LocationStirling

One of the most historic cities in Scotland, Stirling has a rich heritage based around the Wars of Independence. The magnificent Stirling Castle was a site of historic importance. The grand National Wallace Monument overlooks the Battle site at Stirling Bridge, where the patriot and martyr Sir William Wallace won a famous victory. The Old Town is packed with medieval and renaissance architecture, and cobbled streets, but there is also a bustling modern city centre, where you can find an array of shops and restaurants. Kings Park, Stirling’s largest park is fun for the family, with a golf course, and beautiful walks, as well as extensive playground equipment for the kids, crazy golf and a skate park. 

Stirlingshire

Stirlingshire sits in the very centre of Scotland. The county town of Stirling itself is considered a gateway to the Highlands. The town and indeed the shire of Stirling has played a tremendous role in Scotland’s historical wars for Independence; with William Wallace’s defeat at the Battle of Falkirk, and Robert the Bruce’s famous Battle of Bannockburn, there are now several sites of historical interest to visit. The town of Falkirk lies in the Forth Valley, and boasts the impressive Falkirk Wheel, a rotating boat lift. The town of Blair Drummond is home to the Safari and Adventure Park; a fantastic family day out, and Edinburgh and Glasgow are both popular for day trips. Other towns of interest in Stirlingshire include Bridge of Allan, Grangemouth and Denny. To the west lies the Trossachs National Park, and the east shores of Loch Lomond. The spectacular highland beauty found here is ideal for nature lovers, and explorers.

Central Scotland

Incorporating the two largest Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, Central Scotland is a hive of activities and attractions for visitors, and there will be plenty to entertain you on your trip. For a family outing try Edinburgh Castle, for a day at the beach try the Firth of Forth coastline, for shopping you can’t beat either city centre, or if you just want soaking up some Scottish landscapes try Perthshire’s rolling southern lowlands, and wilderness of its highland. Whatever takes your fancy, the central counties can offer it all. Airports at Edinburgh, Glasgow and Prestwick offer great transportation links for those coming from afar.
