A fairytale castle in the Angus Glens, within easy reach of the coast and the Cairngorms. Perfect for history lovers and those looking for an active family break.

Embrace the romantic allure of Angus, famous for its spectacular coastline, fairy tale glens and rolling hills. Based in your very own castle on the grand Airlie estate, this impressive accommodation has everything you need to celebrate in style with acres of grounds at your disposal. Indulge in a spot of fine dining and champagne in front of the roaring fire in the dining room, the clinking of glasses and sounds of merriment lasting well into the night. Both the keen and amateur sportsman will adore the variety of leisure facilities on offer such as croquet, tennis, football golf and even fishing and stalking nearby. Sleeping parties of up to 14 guests, this spectacular property is ideal for special gatherings and is an enchanting venue for a wedding.

 

 

The castle stands triumphant amongst sweeping lawns and manicured shrubs, its turrets and tower creating a majestic vibe. Inside, each room is brimming with sophisticated charm with traditional furniture and antique artwork. The first two floors are dedicated to socialising, where guests can gather together for some healthy competition in the marvellous playroom or snooker room with darts board, or choose between the drawing room and library to relax with a nightcap. The fantastic kitchen is delightfully equipped for preparing a feast, complete with a rustic table for leisurely breakfasts. The dining room is a treat for the senses, or perhaps you would prefer dining al fresco, sizzling something special on the BBQ. The bedrooms are elegant and comfortable, dressed in deliciously crisp linen, including an irresistible master bedroom boasting a four-poster bed and stairs leading down to an en-suite. A further double bedroom has a wrought iron bath and twin enamel basins, and the remaining bedrooms share a main bathroom on the second floor as well as a smaller one upstairs on the third floor. There’s also a children’s bedroom with three single beds – excellent for sleepovers!

The house is spectacular and the location wonderful. The housekeeper is most helpful and all the people we encountered during our stay were welcoming and helpful. We were lucky with the weather and so made good use of the tennis, the croquet, the barbaque as well as the indoor facilities. The scorching heat on the Sunday drove many down to the riveRead morer where it was shallow enough even for the 4 year old to enjoy paddling under supervision. Beware - no showers. Hide

We had an amazing week at Airlie castle with extended family (age 9 to 80). Such a beautiful location and house full of character. We made full use of the tennis court, table tennis and snooker table and loved the walks around the estate, the river and relaxing in the grounds and felt little need to venture out too often. Would love to return one dRead moreay. Hide
