Ormiston Castle Hero 2

Kirkbryce Castle Scotland


This stunning Scottish baronial manor is a luxury hideaway for the exclusive use of just 10 guests. On arrival, a fairy-tale castle greets you and when you step through the doorway, the glamorous interiors are breathtaking. A stylish black and white theme runs through many of the rooms, from the living room with its zebra print rugs and grand piano to the master bedroom suite with its white Chesterfield sofa and black chandelier. Meanwhile, another drawing room opts for a neutral palette that catches the sun through huge bay windows. Original artworks add more drama, and it’s hard to believe that you have this luxury to yourselves. When you can drag yourself away from these fabulous rooms, seek out the traditional Scottish bar and plush cinema room.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all your home comforts, including a Nespresso machine and an Aga, you can eat in the open plan dining area or the decadent dining room. The five bedroom suites are sophisticated and sumptuous and the ensuite bathrooms variously boast Italian marble tiles, roll-top baths and walk-in showers. All have luxury towels and Isle of Arran toiletries.

Outside, spread yourselves out on one of the two furnished terraces, where there are sunbeds, comfy seating, a gas BBQ and fire pit. Or you can play tennis or explore the landscaped grounds and wander through the woodlands to the waterfall.

Kirkbryce Castle is just 12 miles from Edinburgh and within a 30-minute drive of 15 major golf courses, making it the ideal choice for a couples’ weekend which pleases everyone. A housekeeper is on hand throughout your stay (lives off-site) and you can choose to hire extra staff such as a chef, chauffeur or concierge.

What we think

Wow! There are so many superlatives that could describe Kirkbryce Castle. We love this beautiful home as it offers grandeur and opulence on the one hand, while still having a relaxed feel on the other, with a bar, cinema room and tennis court to add to everyone's enjoyment.
