Built in 1852, Edinburgh-based wine merchant and Provost of Leith Thomas Hutchison commissioned David Rhind, a celebrated Scottish architect, to design the Castle. Best known for grand commercial and public buildings, this stunning Castle is one of Rhind’s few domestic commissions.
One step from the castle’s front door are 32 acres of fresh air, countryside, gardens and our own herd of Roe deer to keep a watchful eye as guests walk, jog and ramble across the estate.
The Walled Garden has a tennis court, stripey lawns to play croquet, boules, football and basketball. From picnicing in one of the grass paddocks to abseiling down the castle walls – contact us to discover what you could get up to during your stay.
After exercising on the estate or purely when you fancy some ‘me-time’, relax with a yoga or pilates session, lose yourself in a tailored massage in your bedroom, or get creative at an art class in the orangery.
There are spaces to chill out in, spaces for dancing the night away, and conveniently, luxury bedrooms to slip into at dawn.
Sample award-winning culinary delights from the kitchen of the Castle’s inspiring chef Iain MacDonald. Under Iain’s watchful eye, the kitchens are provided with only the best of locally-sourced produce. Beef comes exclusively from the Buccleuch estate; local growers are responsible for fresh produce; and fish hand-picked at dawn by expert-fishmongers along the Scottish coast.
Spread across three floors of the Castle and the Gate Lodge, there are fourteen spacious and luxurious bedrooms, accommodating up to 26 guests. Every room enjoys breathtaking views across the 32 acre castle grounds.
Each of the beautiful bedrooms has been individually designed and decorated with original works by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists. The bedrooms all incorporate handmade beds and cabinetry from Atelier 1852 and feature sumptuous soft furnishings, bed linen and towels. The ensuite bathrooms feature handmade roll top baths, marble tiles, underfloor heating and walk-in showers. Duvets and pillows are filled with Hungarian goose down.
