Description

This fabulous castle apartment is perfect for a holiday and is in the ideal setting geographically being close to Gleneagles, Perth, Stirling and Edinburgh.

Built in 1889 in the Scots Baronial style this castle has been restored and converted into a number of impressive apartments, of which this one on the first floor is available to let for up to 4 people.  During World War II, like many large houses and castles, it was commandeered for military use and from 1941 - 1944 was the headquarters for No. 72 Wing of the RAF, controlling all the radar stations in Scotland.

On offer today is a stylish and modern apartment which is beautifully presented and is well suited for a family visiting central Scotland or for romantic getaways. The main living accommodation is open plan, with one bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a study or twin bedroom, and a separate w.c, Set in beautifully maintained communal gardens, there is plenty of parking for two cars at the front of the castle. This is the perfect base to take in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Perth, Gleneagles, St Andrews or wherever you wish to visit in central Scotland.

This is a great opportunity to stay in a Scottish castle for four guests.

  • Living
  • Beds & Baths
  • Grounds
  • Please note
  • As an apartment there is one room, which is the kitchen, dining and living space all rolled into one. Situated to the rear of the main section of the castle with turret space, the black granite work surfaces of the kitchen area match the black sofas in the living space and the whole room blends in so well as far as the interior design goes. The comfortable sofas are great to relax in after a day out.

    Within the living space, the kitchen area is modern and very well equipped with gas for cooking, where even the likes of the Scottish chef Nick Nairn has cooked in this apartment. With modern table and chair sets for dining – you can mix and match how you set up for eating.

  • Accommodation is provided for a group of 4 (ideal for a family group) in 2 bedrooms sharing 1 bathroom, as follows:

    First floor

    “Master” double room, with king size double bed, with en-suite bathroom, with bath with shower over, w.c and wash hand basin;

    “Turret” twin room with two single beds and turret alcove space; w.c, with w.c and wash hand basin.

  • Set within 3 acres of immaculate communal grounds, shared with the other occupants of the castle, with outstanding views across to the Ochil Hills. Located 30 miles north west of Edinburgh and 2 miles from Dollar.  

    There are good shopping, pubs and hotels available in Dollar, whilst in Dunfermline, 12 miles away there is a selection of superstores and a cinema complex.

    Close to both Edinburgh and Glasgow for cultural days out, it is also only half an hour from Gleneagles. A range of other golf courses are available locally. For family entertainment, Drummond Safari Park and Deep Sea World are nearby. Knockhill racing circuit is in the vicinity. A visit to Stirling Castle is a must.

Loved the counter space in the kitchen, but there wasn't any cupboard space to put your own things/food. Nice to have a dishwasher. Table was cramped with four chairs.

Bathtub was a treat. No hooks in bathroom or bedroom, though, for robes and such.

Overall, poor use of space, but still lovely. Never got tiring coming 'home' to castle. Location is outstanding.

Easy & clear instructions to book.

Wonderful location. Tranquil and silent. Beautiful surroundings and nature. High quality rooms and location, modern, state of the art, yet authentic.

Would like to have a shower in each room (rather than sharing bathroom with two rooms). Second bed room has two small windows and can benefit from more natural light. Please add a cloth dryer for drying towels.

Thank you for your lovely feedback, and great to hear you enjoyed staying in this beautiful apartment in the Dollarbeg castle! The castle as advertised does have one shared bathroom and due to this layout we do advise that the accommodation is best suited to a family group staying of 2 adults and 2 children however it sounds as though you really enjoyed your stay and we would be delighted to help with any future plans to visit Scotland.

Good service. Helpful in resolving international payment issues. Smooth entry and exit. Prompt in returning calls and e-mail messages.

Thanks for your great comments, and glad to hear our service was helpful with the holiday planning.

An excellent location to countless places of interest in the surround areas. Very well equipped and high level of décor in the accommodation, defiantly felt special to be staying in a castle. The only thing that disappointed us and felt it was let down by was the main double bed as the accommodation was advertised as having a king size double and was only a standard double! Also the fact that the bed consisted of 2 mattresses, one on top of another so made it very wobbly when moving about on it, not what you would expect from this standard of accommodation! Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Thank you for your feedback and for bringing to our attention the typo on the accommodation page, compared to the main references to the double bed, and this has now been corrected. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and look forward to assisting you in the future.

Booking was straight forward, plus the on-line payment system. The good housekeeping deposit was left to memory, paid on the last day - there was no email reminder which would be helpful. Also, final directions to property were out of date, got us to within 400m of the Castle, but entrance driveway had altered, their records need updating.
