King (Or Queen) of The Castle
If you fancy lording it up for the week or fort-night (castle pun, #sorrynotsorry), how about booking into a castle for the ultimate luxury break? Make like royalty with a stay in a Scottish castle and enjoy some of the finer things in life. There are lots of gorgeous castle hotels in Scotland, where you can happily live out your majestic dreams.
Living The Life Of Luxury
Okay, so castles have a bit of a reputation for being haunted. But a wee ghost or ghoul can’t compete with the opulence offered in some of these hotels. So tell those ghosts to get busted and check out some of these wee beauties for your stay in a Scottish castle.
Take a Highland break and enjoy some traditional luxury at Dornoch Castle. There is a choice of 24 sumptuous rooms on offer for your stay. The star of the show (or king of the castle) is the Old Courtroom. It has a beautiful hand-carved four-poster bed and log fire. Pure indulgence right there.
In the county of Fife, you can find Fernie Castle, set in 17 acres of woodland. The castle has 20 rooms to choose from or if you fancy something a wee bit different, you can book the treehouse suite. No joke, this is a proper grown-up treehouse, complete with three balconies, a huge wooden bed, free-standing bath and all the mod cons. A treehouse fit for a queen for sure.
Fairy Tale Castle
Set on the shores of Loch Creran in Argyll is the fairy tale castle of Barcaldine. This cute turreted castle has been converted into an intimate B&B with only six en-suite bedrooms. For private events, you can hire the entire castle. Perfect for parties if you enjoy some good knight life (castle pun again #sorrynotsorry).
If you fancy keeping it a bit more real and wild with some camping, you can do this in the grounds of Blair Castle, Perthshire. There are lodges on-site too in case there’s no space in the tent for your tiara.
All Out Luxury
The ultimate luxury stay in a Scottish castle has to be at Skibo Castle. You even have to be a member of the prestigious ‘Carnegie Club’ to step inside this crib, so I’m guessing this one doesn’t come cheap. But it does boast 21 castle rooms, a championship link golf course, a spa and horse riding. Also, a resident piper can wake you every morning. So you better nae have too many drams the night before!
