We are a family with two young children based in Australia who have travelled extensively, always choosing authentic accommodation unique to the region. We chose the Ballroom Apartment at Dollarbeg Castle as a base to explore Scotland for the first time. Sue was very helpful in arranging our stay for the week. Upon arrival, after our 27hr flight we were greeted at the door, shown into the apartment and surprised with a gourmet hamper and bottle of champagne!
From the moment we walked into the living room we were amazed at the size and quality of this apartment. The recent refurbishment has been sympathetic to the age of this castle while including every modern convenience, from the bespoke fully equipped kitchen to the claw foot bath, the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing. There are original artworks, Aston Martin memorabilia, antiques, local tartan wool carpets, top quality linen, stereo with a large CD collection and large plasma for the kids.
When travelling we usually leave our accommodation early to fit as much into the day as possible, but here we would find ourselves by mid morning still sitting in the living room gazing out over the castle gardens across the rolling hills to the highlands in the distance. However over the week we were still able to visit many places from here including; Campbell Castle, Stirling Castle, William Wallace Monument, Glamis Castle, St Andrews and the Kingdom of Fife, Crathes Castle, Drum Castle, Edinburgh, Blair Castle, Inverness and Loch Ness.
This was a memorable stay and we would not hesitate in recommending The Ballroom Apartment at Dollarbeg Castle to anybody.
