Sheltered within the trees below the distinct shape of Bennachie, is this typical late fifteenth century tower house built to a simple L-plan, with three storeys, a garret and a stone turnpike circular stairway. A further wing was added in the eighteenth century, and the castle with its turrets has a fairytale quality from the outside.

Within there is a formal drawing room with open fire, as well as a snug, which is ideal for playing cards or keeping your own counsel. The dining room is a beautiful wood panelled room, with open fire and dining table that can seat all 14 guests. Whilst next door is a further secondary sitting room, a further less formal TV room is also available, which is ideal for children. The well equipped kitchen, with breakfasting area can be found at ground level. The accommodation is mostly on the floors above the first floor with a selection of double and twin bedrooms, though there is one double bedroom on the first floor. The four poster double bed can be found on the second floor. Throughout this old fashioned castle you will find nooks and crannies housing small bathrooms, as well as many original historical features, such as low door frames. The private grounds consist of lawns and mixed woodlands with a stream running through it. The castle is ideal for family occasions, wedding groups or for corporate events.

WHAT TO DO IN THE AREA

When entering Aberdeenshire, the sign states “From mountain to sea?? and that sums up nicely what this glorious region has to offer. Aberdeenshire is dominated by hills, with Bennachie, a local favourite, whilst there are miles of coastline, including the famous dunes at Balmedie. For a more cultural and cosmopolitan experience, then the vibrant city of Aberdeen, with a range of excellent shopping and first class restaurants only forty five minutes away. The Castle Trail is in the vicinity, with Fyvie Castle being a highlight. Horse riding is available nearby. Fishing can be arranged on the river Deveron. A falconry centre is nearby at Huntly. Mountain to sea, country to city, this area provides something for everyone.

Notes

  • Saturday - Saturday.

    Price (per week):
    £1,950 to £3,800.

    Please note there is a small burn that flows past the sides of the castle and this area is not suitable for unsupervised children.

    Dogs Allowed: YES. Maximum of 3 only. Additional charge per booking of £15 each. Restricted to ground floor only.
  • Use of car hire is essential, to be able to discover the true beauty of the surrounding areas.

    For those flying into Scotland, the closest airport to this property is Aberdeen 25 miles away and hiring a car or 4WD couldn’t be more convenient if you are choosing to travel by air. There are a variety of well known car rental companies that will provide car hire at Aberdeen airport for your arrival.

    If you are driving into Scotland from the south, the major arterial motorway into Scotland, the M74, although busy is generally free flowing.
  • Trains these days can also be an extremely accessible and pleasurable means of transport into Scotland for individuals and groups alike. All the major railway stations have car hire companies located in situ, enabling the transition from carriage to car to be as stress free as possible. The East coast mainline that runs between London and Aberdeen takes approximately seven and a quarter hours, and car hire can be easily arranged for your arrival, requiring only a short drive for the remainder of your journey. The closest station to the castle is Insch, only 2 miles away.
