Summary

STEP INSIDE THE ANCIENT WALLS OF DALHOUSIE CASTLE AND YOU’LL FIND YOURSELF IN A LUXURIOUS HOTEL WITH A FASCINATING PAST. Standing within its own 11-acre parkland estate on the banks of the River Esk a mere 8 miles south-east from the bright lights of Edinburgh, this 13th-century castle is a truly enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

What makes a stay at Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa unique?

Brimming with over 700 years of history, Dalhousie Castle is the kind of place that could have been plucked from the pages of a fairy-tale. But make no mistake, this ancient castle with its complex arrangement of turrets and towers is very much the real McCoy. Once the seat of the Ramsay Clan, the castle boasts an illustrious guest list that includes King Edward I, Sir Walter Scott, Oliver Cromwell and Queen Victoria. Today the castle’s long tradition of hospitality continues and you can still be assured a royal welcome and the highest standards of food and service at this fine four-star hotel.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa?

A fortress fit for a king or queen with blissful spa facilities, award-winning fine dining and 35 beautifully appointed bedrooms (some with four poster beds, naturally). Each one-of-a-kind room is luxuriously decorated with rich Scottish fabrics and period furniture and worthy of a stay from a royal visitor. Despite the historic surroundings, the rooms have been designed with today’s discerning guest in mind and come complete with soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and robes, slippers and Molton Brown toiletries. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, flat screen digital TV, direct-dial telephone, iron and ironing board, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Edinburgh area?

Learn about the historic and noble art of falconry or try your hand at archery. You don’t need to roam too far from the castle walls to create memories that will last a lifetime. Dalhousie Castle lies just 8 miles from the centre of Scotland’s capital with its cosmopolitan mix of shops and eateries, historic monuments, family attractions and a thriving arts and entertainment scene.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Once a dark and fearsome place, the atmospheric dungeon is a dining room where candlelight flickers across the barrel-vaulted ceiling and shining suits of armour. Head chef Francois Giraud brings a dash of French sophistication to a menu rich with the finest Scottish produce – earning two AA rosettes for excellence. In contrast, the Orangery is a bright, airy place to eat, drink and relax, its huge windows giving a fine view of the river and the rolling Scottish skies overhead. Family-friendly and informal, this bistro-style restaurant offers a modern mix of Scottish and European cuisine with plenty of family favourites to keep everyone happy.

Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa also has a Spa, Wedding Venue and Restaurant:

10 of the Best New Year's Eve Hotels by Dinah Hatch

"This fairytale-like 700-year-old castle sits within acres of stunning parkland just eight miles south of Edinburgh and is the epitome of Scottish elegance. Imagine peeping through the arrow slits at snowy vistas as you make your way to afternoon tea by a roaring fire, later descending past soaring Christmas trees on the glamorous red-carpet staircase to the ancient barrel-vaulted dungeons for a Hogmanay dinner and knees up to remember. Make sure you bag yourself a bedroom with a four-poster bed in which to sleep off the party. Spend New Year’s Day strolling the grounds, trying out some archery or flying a bird of prey in the falconry – or collapse in the tip-top spa for a reviving treatment."

Detox With Less Suffering by Adrian Mourby

"You wouldn’t immediately think that the thirteenth-century fortress of Dalhousie Castle was also the first hotel in Scotland to introduce a hydro spa. This comfortable country house hotel has witnessed a lot of history. In 1298 King Edward I stayed at this castle on his way to fight William Wallace at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298. In 1400 King Henry IV besieged the forces of Sir Alexander Ramsay for six months here, and Oliver Cromwell used the castle as a base for his invasion of Scotland.

The fiercest thing you’ll encounter these days at Dalhousie is the glass-lined Hydro Pool where multi-massage jets, designed to reach those muscles where tension is stored, pummel your stresses away. There are also treatment rooms that employ Elemis therapeutic and beauty products to help send you home happy and refreshed.

Today Dalhousie Castle with its fluted ceilings, ivy clad walls and dining room watched over by suits of armour has an authentic baronial feel to it, but also a modern commitment to healthy living in its spa."

The Falconry Experience at Dalhousie Castle was truly a delight and enjoyable time. Denise & Tom showed much admiration for the birds of prey in their care. Terrific!
