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.

Follow in the steps of royalty when you step into this impressive 700-year-old castle, which sleeps up to 12 guests. In more recent times, the substantial historic property has been home to the cast and crew of TV drama series Outlander, when they filmed at adjacent Doune Castle, a former medieval stronghold. Luxuriate in the sumptuous splendour of the accommodation here, wander through acres of private parkland and stroll into Doune, less than 0.5 miles away, with its intriguing shops and exceptional restaurants. During your stay, also take the opportunity to explore Stirling, 8.5 miles away, with its own famous castle high up on the rocks.

Discover the abundant character and incredible ambience throughout your private castle, with its exposed beams, stone fireplaces and wood panelling. At ground-floor level, your capacious kitchen/diner extends a warm welcome with its AGA and long table. There is also an atmospheric music room, a boot room and a family shower room at this level. Head up to one first-floor section of the castle to find your impressive drawing and dining rooms, where you can relax and dine together in complete comfort. Take a few steps up to one of your bedrooms and a bathroom; also find an attic bedroom and another bathroom close by. Your other first floor level accommodates your inviting lounge or long room, where you can recline in front of the TV or pick up a cue for a game of snooker. A family bedroom is also located here. Find three more bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room in your own private tower. One of these rooms even has a priest hole. The fascinating basement, with its vaulted ceiling, may be hired by arrangement for weddings. Please be aware of the historic, castle-style stairs throughout the property, which may make the accommodation unsuitable for young or less mobile guests.

Explore the acres of parkland in which your castle is set at your leisure. Sun yourself in your walled garden or amble across the lawns. Private parking is available on site.

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
