Forth One Super Heroes visit Carlowrie16th May 2019
We had a fly-ing visit from Super Heroes Boogie, Arlene and Marty from Forth One Radio. Each year they work tirelessly to raise funds for “Cash for Kids”, an incredible charity that supports disadvantaged children in our communities so they can live life to the full. We donated a night in our lovely Gate House Lodge for up to 10 guests and we look forward to welcoming the lucky winner soon.
Tell us more about your charity or maybe you know a super-human hero? We’d love to hear your story.
Creating a Buzzzzz13th May 2019
We’ve been producing Honey at Carlowrie for the past 40 years in a variety of hives within the Estate. “Bee” sure to lookout for them if you’re out for a stroll in the fields behind the Castle.
Saving the planet one bee at a time.

Carlowrie – your new flexible friend27th 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!
