This imposing 700-year-old castle in the Perthshire village of Doune is full of history; it is a spectacular holiday home for large groups and a splendid setting for celebrations.

Experience your own chapter of living history during a stay at this Scottish castle near Doune, Perthshire. Up to 12 guests can sleep under the same roof as Bonnie Prince Charlie and Sir Walter Scott previously have. Luxuriate in the abundance of great character still present at the six-bedroom castle, as well as in its sumptuous antique furnishings. Enjoy it as a magnificent retreat, wander through its beautiful parkland estate or head out to explore the surrounding area.

Your splendid 700-year-old castle tells a story at every turn. Step inside to discover its exposed timberwork, impressive fireplaces and atmospheric wooden panelling. Your substantial kitchen/diner will be the perfect place to serve mountains of Scottish food to your group, while the music room offers another ground-floor space to spill into. You’ll find you also have a useful boot room and a family shower room on this floor. The upper-level accommodation can all be found up historic, castle-style stairs, which may be unsuitable for younger or less mobile guests. Head up to the first-floor area of the castle’s right wing to unwind in your incredible lounge or enjoy lively meals together in your elegant dining room. Climb a few more steps to a bedroom and bathroom and discover an attic bedroom and its bathroom also in this part of the castle. Explore the left wing of the house, where another first floor can be found. An additional bedroom is situated here – and you can also watch TV or pot a few balls on the snooker table in a second lounge. Find more fairy-tale accommodation in your very own tower, which houses three more bedrooms (one with a priest hole), plus a family bathroom and a shower room. This ancient, castle also has a vaulted chapel on the basement level, which can be reserved for special occasions. Wander out into the private grounds whenever you choose; explore the different areas, watch the children playing in the walled garden and take your afternoon tea out on to the lawn to enjoy in the sunshine. Ample parking is available at the castle.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Reviewed by Mrs Buchanan, July 2019

We booked Old Newton for a family holiday in July 2019. We had a wonderful time. Old Newton is the most beautiful building with character. All rooms were different and furnished to the highest of standards. Vicki, the owner greeted us and was most welcoming. She even brought extra dog beds for our pets, which was a lovely extra touch. The walled gaRead morerden allows for privacy and is a haven of peace, it is very well stocked and just lovely. Doune has lots of walks and wildlife which we enjoyed. We also visited Stirling and some surrounding towns as they were easily assessible. We would absolutely recommend a stay. We intend to book again soon. Hide
