Luxuriate in the grandeur of your own Scottish castle, set within parkland grounds and gardens, beautifully furnished with antiques and still presenting fascinating some period features and painted ceilings.
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the striking beauty of this fairy-tale Scottish tower house, with its history stretching back through the centuries. Dating back to at least 1536, the impressive, seven-bedroom holiday home, approximately 8.5 miles from Banff, sleeps up to 14 guests – plus an additional four on pull-outs. Head out across picturesque Aberdeenshire, with its fabulous walks. Pack a picnic and make your way to the coast about 6 miles away for dramatic cliffs and wide sandy beaches. Simply relax beside the fire or wood burner and enjoy your generous getaway or soak up the sunshine beside your endless, outdoor enclosed swimming pool. Discover a separate external studio, which can also be booked for celebrations or additional space.
As kings of your own castle, relish the opulence of the tower, with its large rooms and antique furniture and furnishings. Unwind in the unique ambience of the historic home while also discovering its inviting spaces offer modern day levels of comfort. The owner does live within separate self-contained quarters within the property to ensure they are close by if needed. Discover your kitchen at ground-floor level: this is ideal for preparing feasts for large groups and is also spacious enough to accommodate caterers. Find your breakfast room, where up to 16 can sit down to tasty meals, as well as your elegant dining room for more intimate meals for up to eight. There is also a games room, where you can challenge each other to a pool match, and a boot room and a drying room on this floor along with an additional shower room. Unusually, also find you have your own private chapel. Retreat up to your sumptuous first-floor lounge, where you can spend evenings together, or while away time in your great hall, another spectacular room for congregating in.
