'The Tower' has 3 bedrooms which sleep 6 (+baby). It is spacious and beautifully presented - approx. 200 sq m and is set on 4 floors of the exquisitely refurbished Dollarbeg Castle. Originally built in the 19th century for a Victorian railway tycoon, it now combines traditional Scottish baronial architecture with modern comfort and style.
The living area (on the 1st floor) is a cosy and relaxing area, with 2 turrets (with windows). It is beautifully furnished to a high standard with wooden floors and large sofas. Indoor entertainment includes an integrated sound system with individual room controls throughout the apartment. There is also a cinema room with large comfy sofas and a 60 inch screen for tv and dvd's.
The open plan living area space leads to the fully equipped kitchen area, including oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
On the same floor is the master bedroom which has a super king-size bed which can convert to twin beds on request. There is also an en-suite with bath and shower above. Built-in wardrobe space and another turret with window complete the room. A cot is available if required.
The main bathroom is also located on this floor, with separate bath and shower.
The second bedroom also has a super king-size bed which can convert to twin beds on request. The 'Tower' apartment has an interesting lay-out and this room is on its own level off the first flight of stairs.
The third bedroom has a queen size bed and is located up the spiral staircase of the tower on the 3rd floor ( Please note -approx 30 steps up!) A beautiful room with amazing views from windows on 3 sides. (The bed can only be used as a double).
Further up the spiral staircase is the private roof terrace, the perfect place to sunbathe during the day, or relax with drinks in the evening.
Please note there are many stairs to climb! The apartment itself is on the first floor followed by a staircase up to the living area. Further to that is the spiral staircase which has approx 50 steps.
Dollarbeg Castle is ideally situated for both playing/watching golf and sightseeing. Gleneagles is only 15 - 20 min away and visitors are welcome at Dollar Golf Club, only a few minute's drive away. Stirling is only 20 min by car with other amazing castles such as Edinburgh, Scone, Blair and Glamis (childhood home of the Queen Mother) within an hour's drive.
I am a Harley Street Dental Surgeon who lives in London, but loves Scotland.
Having already bought one apartment in the castle a few years ago, the opportunity arose to buy another one! This means two families or more can stay at the castle and have the benefit of lots of space.
I especially like the views from the top of the Tower.
