"The facilities, the food were of the highest standards but, from what I gathered from our guests, what made the event even more special is the way all of you interacted with the said guests, with competence and amiability."

Room for Everyone

The castle boasts a wide range of bedrooms. From the cosiness of Crookston Cottage, great for a small family; to the gorgeous Gatehouse for luxurious independence with its two ton marble bath; to the Wizard’s Tower for that quintessential quirky castle feel.

"Whether it was helping to carry suitcases up hundreds of steps, holding umbrellas for us in the rain, attending to our numerous guests, or just checking-in to see how we were getting along, your team was amazing, thoughtful, and they never missed a beat."

First of all, WE MISS ALL OF YOU SO Much! We loved our Party week at the castle and will NEVER forget how wonderful everything was. Thank you ALL again for making it the most special week EVER!

CWScott and his staff inside treated us like royalty

We are safely back home after a long day of travel from Scotland, and we honestly don't have the words to thank you for the time we had at the castle. Everyone there was simply amazing. The itinerary you set up for us ran flawlessly each day. Scott and his staff inside treated us like royalty and all of our guests enjoyed getting to know everyone on staff. The food was out of this world! We simply couldn't have asked for a better celebration of our anniversary with our friends. Please convey our deepest gratitude to all there for making us feel so special. We do look forward to another celebration with you in the future and will recommend you to all of our friends.

TJSPhenomenal

Huge thanks to you and your team for organising such a brilliant weekend. TJ said it was "phenomenal" and that "everyone loved the castle and itinerary". And he was full of praise for all the staff. The only negative was the state of the group yesterday morning after what sounded like a heavy drinking session on Saturday!
