  • IT’S A FIRST! BOOK INDIVIDUAL ROOMS IN AUGUST

    09th June 2016

    To celebrate our first anniversary we are opening the castle doors for individuals to stay in August… and… as a happy coincidence it coincides with the Edinburgh Festival.

    Fact… Edinburgh is busy in August and accommodation is hard to find – 1 festival (5 to 26 August), 7 double rooms, 1 suite with 2 bedrooms, 24 days availability. Technically we can rest 384 sleepy festival going heads – in luxury and in a castle – from £295 per double room throughout August!

    Whether you lean towards the avant-garde or mainstream, the classics or quite frankly the outrageous you are invited to stay with us. Rooms and Suites… from £295 per night inclusive of Scottish Breakfast and VAT.

    Email us and quote ‘FRINGE’ to reserve your room in the castle between 1 and 31 August 2016.

  • WE HAVE OUR VERY OWN CHILDREN’S NANNY

    09th June 2016

    Emma Howden is joining the team to look after our younger guests while Mum and Dad are playing tennis in the grounds or popping into Edinburgh for a night out. Emma spent 5 years in Paris, Australia and then London working as a Nanny before coming back to Scotland to undertake a Montessori education course. The children she looked after during her spell as a nanny were aged from babies to 12 years old. Her organisational skills, patience and sense of fun come in extremely useful when looking after children. Welcome Emma.

  • BLOOMING LOVELY!

    A short post to share a glorious image from the Walled Garden taken by David the Castle’s Head Gardener. Beautiful delicate pale blue Meconopsis – and a cheeky Alium photo bombing in the background.

  • OUR NEW BAR

    08th June 2016

    The castle has a brand new glamorous bar that was installed for Andrew’s 40th birthday party (he owns the castle) which was a great success. In fact a little too much of a success! But, we didn’t say that.  The addition of the bar ensures that guests experience the ‘exclusively’ intimate atmosphere of a private members club when they stay, or join us as part of a larger group. Ideal to gather for a pre, and post, event drink or two!!
