George Goldsmith has several castles for rent.
The Edinburgh-based property company, which this year celebrates its 15th anniversary, offers an exclusive selection of prime sporting estates, lodges, castles and country houses, set in some of Scotland’s most breathtaking scenery.
Castle accommodation ranges from self-catering to full board, and can sleep anything from 10 to 55 people.
George said: “When we mention a castle, many people conjure up an image of a cold and draughty turreted building.
“However, we’re lucky that many of Scotland’s castles have been ‘rescued’ and lovingly restored and brought into the 21st Century with many modern-day facilities such as en suite bathrooms and Wi-Fi.
“Renting a castle or country house, as opposed to a hotel, has many benefits, not least because it gives the party privacy. It can also work out cheaper per person than a hotel stay.
“Guests can tailor-make their castle stay by incorporating their own entertainment such as fishing, golf or hiring a chef.
“Many of our clients are from overseas, especially the US and Australia, however the majority are from the UK and we have seen an increase in bookings over the last year or so.”
Properties include Aldourie Castle in Inverness, which has its own private jetty so you and your guests can enjoy boat trips round Loch Ness and Kelly Castle near Arbroath which has its own private family golf course, cinema room and bar.
Forter Castle in Perthshire boasts four-poster beds, stone spiral staircases, top-of-the-range mountain bikes so you can enjoy the outdoors and a collection of ’50s classic movies for cosy nights in, as well as a library of books and board games.
