On acres of wooded parkland, this fascinating 13th-century fortress is on the banks of the River Esk. The Dalhousie Castle Hotel features luxurious accommodations, award-winning fine dining, and spa and recreational facilities.

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

The spa offers 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 on the grounds.

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

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.1 for a two-person trip.
