SUMMARY

All guests will be warmly welcomed to a truly five star experience like no other in this unique exclusive use property.

The elegant accommodation is spread over five floors, all connected via two spiral staircases. The first staircase leads you to the third floor, whereas the second takes you to the very top of the tower and out onto the battlements, to take in the utterly breath-taking views of the Lammermuir Hills and across the Firth of Forth to Fife beyond.

The castle has had many distinguished visitors in its long illustrious history, among them being King James VI of Scotland (son of Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley) who took refuge there as he fled from the rebel army in Fife across Firth of Forth due to its afforded panoramic views.

Today, peace reigns and a small, dedicated team of staff will be on hand to guide, advise and facilitate your every requirement. You can be assured that you will want for nothing during your stay making the castle your very own.
