Four poster bedWe welcome room bookings of any duration, whether it be one day or one week. Please contact us and we can discuss the perfect booking to suit your needs. We also welcome non-resident dining at the Castle, accepting bookings from one person upwards. All non-resident dining must be booked and confirmed in advance.

Relax in the elegantly proportioned Stateroom with its beautiful arched windows and the small chapel once used by Mary Queen of Scots on her various visits. Descend to the Great Hall for pre-dinner drinks, take a look at the menu and wine list before being conducted on a full historical tour of the castle. Afterwards, enjoy a stunning meal by candlelight in the Great Hall. The cuisine at the Castle is described as “modern British with a strong bias for Scotland’s natural larder”. A comprehensive wine list is complemented by a fine selection of malt whiskies. While the Castle caters for large parties, we especially welcome those seeking a more intimate dinner for two. In either case, the experience is unforgettable and there is no dress code as such; we want our guests to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

“Just an incredible place to stay! It was interesting to feel so close to history as opposed to reading about it. The setting and atmosphere are amazing and it will be remembered forever.”
