    Flying high at Carlowrie

    8th April 2019

    Falconry in our walled garden is just one of the unique experiences we offer guests.  Get up close and personal with Hawks, Owls, Falcons, Kites and Eagles. Under our instructors watchful eye guests can handle and feed these incredible birds and enjoy a leisurely walk through the Estate as they fly high above.

    Our 32 acre estate and stunning gardens are perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, and don’t forget to make time afterwards for a mouthwatering afternoon tea in our delightful Piano Lounge or Orangery.

  • Carlowrie – your new flexible friend

    27th March 2019

    After the rigours of the festive season we started the year at Carlowrie with our first yoga retreat, joined by a select few from around Scotland on the mats in the Orangery. A luxury weekend of spiritual development and higher consciousness, not to mention fine healthy food and drinks with guidance, massage and therapies provided by our expert partners at Sonoyoga.

    It proved the perfect setting, a world away from the bustle of daily life, and an inspiring start to 2019. However wellbeing is not just for Christmas, so if you are interested in a wellness retreat, or even just a session or package to add in to your own event at Carlowrie, please get in touch.

  • Striving for egg-sellence.

    12th December 2018

    We are delighted to introduce our latest residents at the castle – 6 beautiful hens. The girls arrived at the weekend, and are settling into their coop and paddock at the far end of the walled garden. We have already had a couple of batches of eggs to sample for our breakfasts – there really is nothing like a free range egg straight from the chicken!

    Our ladies are part of our continuing efforts to be more self-sufficient, and grow our ‘farm to fork’ policy. Our philosophy has always been ‘don’t bite the land that feeds you’ and we seek to minimise our environmental impact in every aspect of the business. From our biomass boilers fed with local wood chips that heat the castle, to our tree planting programme through the Woodland Trust. We source everything locally as far as possible for our menus, our excellent maintenance team repair before renewing.

    Our head chef Iain has been working with Andrew our Gardener on ways that the castle can honour its strong botanical history (see Isobel Wylie Hutchison) and further introduce home grown produce through for catering. We already use herbs and botanicals grown in our restored Victorian hothouses, and have a planting schedule for the upcoming seasons to grow more of our own fruit and veg.

    Our chickens don’t have to worry however – it’s only the eggs we’re after!

  • Launching the Carlowrie Gate Lodge

    15th November 2018

    Our bed stock has just increased and we couldn’t be more delighted with the finished product. The Gate Lodge sits nestled within the Carlowrie Estate, with private access and all the comforts (and some) you would expect from a home from home.

    There are three luxurious double bedrooms on the ground floor and two perfectly cosy smaller doubles on the upper level, ideal size for children. Both of the private bathrooms are situated on the ground floor as well as a fully fitted modern kitchen with an ample sized dining table for family and friends to gather around. The lounge area is the ideal space to kick back and relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the Carlowrie Estate.

    Bookings for the Gate Lodge can be made separately to the Castle, and our diary is now open and starting to fill, so whether it’s a weekend treat or midweek retreat for yourself, friends and loved ones let us know, contact us now for availability and prices. We look forward to welcoming you to the Carlowrie Gate Lodge!
