The Tower, Blackcraig Castle is situated above the gorgeous River Ardle, in the stunning Grade A listed Blackcraig Castle.
Accommodation: 2 bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin (sleeps 4)
If you have ever glimpsed a fantastic castle in the countryside, and wondered what it would be like to stay there then this is your chance. The Tower is set within the truly beautiful Grade A listed Blackcraig Castle.
Surrounded by beautiful woodland and the river Ardle and situated high up the very pretty Strathardle glen, this is a delight. The castle’s renovation is a labour of love and the Tower is the first area now developed into a delightful stylish yet atmospheric holiday spot.
The renovation has ensured you enjoy the character of the castle but also have all the modern facilities you need. The striking little WC fitted into a castle turret is a prime example! This apartment is accessed from its own little stone floored courtyard and has a very social public space combining kitchen/sitting and dining with its own welcoming fire. The double bedroom is a large room with beautiful original features and antique furniture and of course the quirky pleasure of the turret.
Outside you are free to wander the estate walks, fish for trout on the Ericht Ardle river and explore the glen. From here you can readily drive to Royal Deeside to see Balmoral the Queen’s Scottish estate or head north to the highlands. The property also has immediate access to Blackcraig forest, and the nearby old drover's Cateran Trail - a lovely trail for walking as well as cycling. You are well placed for skiing at Glenshee during the winter months and there are many local golf courses; even a day in Edinburgh is perfectly feasible from here.
This is a rare chance to immerse yourself in the historic houses that Scotland is rightly famous for whilst enjoying the serenity and beauty of this corner of Perthshire.
