Set within acres of wooded parkland, this fascinating 13th century fortress is on the banks of the River Esk. The Dalhousie Castle Hotel offers luxurious accommodation, award-winning fine dining, and spa and leisure facilities.

Guests can descend an ancient stairway towards the atmospheric Dungeon Restaurant and enjoy 2 AA Rosette dining. Alternatively, the Orangery offers a more informal experience with sweeping views over the River Esk.

The spa provides a range of treatments, along with hydro facilities such as a massaging jet pool, sauna, and steam pool. There are also opportunities for guests to enjoy archery, clay pigeon shooting, and falconry within the grounds.

Dalhousie Castle Hotel is just a short distance from the A7 and Edinburgh is only 20 minutes' drive. It takes just 10 minutes to reach Rosslyn and Roslin Chapel, which is a possible resting place of the Holy Grail.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.2 for a two-person trip.

Dalhousie Castle Hotel has been welcoming Booking.com guests since 12 Aug 2009.
