About the property

Beautiful new castle apartment in country setting but central location

Stunning Castle Apartment in award winning Dollarbeg Castle in Central Scotland, just an hour's drive from Edinburgh. This gorgeous castle apartment is located within beautifully landscaped grounds and country setting. Well appointed furnishings and fittings. Very convenient central location for visiting Braveheart country (Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument & Bannockburn) and other historic sites plus golfing, touring, walking/hiking and easy drive to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Two bedrooms including one good sized master-bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a second smaller bedroom with two single beds and private shower-room.

As I am out of the country a lot, I employ the services of a property manager called Scotts Castle Holidays. Staff there have personally visited and stayed in my apartment. There are 25 Feefo reviews listed on their website about this apartment, the majority have all been graded 'Excellent'. If you search for their company name online you will find my apartment details and reviews on that platform.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dollarbeg at the end of our 3 week trip to the UK. It was such a nice change from the bustling cities (Paris, London, Cardiff, Edinburgh). We loved being in a more rural setting and in a beautiful castle. The apartment was perfect. The grounds were peaceful, tranquil, and just pleasant to sit and enjoy the beauty around us.

We loved our hike up to Castle Campbell. I really recommend parking at the bottom and hiking up. The castle is nice, but the hike is what made it one of our favorites from our trip.

We happened to be at Stirling Castle on the Queen's birthday, so that was fun to watch the 21 gun salute, bagpipe band, and ceremony.

If you are a fan of Monty Python and the Holy Grail you need to go to Doune Castle and get the audio guide. :) We drove out to Kilchurn Castle and enjoyed the beauty of some of the lochs.

It was just a gorgeous part of the world to be in for several days. And we found that Dollarbeg was a great home base for what we wanted to see and do.

A perfect castle for us to run around

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week here in July, a family of four with two children. The castle apartment was great for us, with lovely big grounds that we could run around in, a couple of walks from the castle itself, and lots of things to do in the immediate area.

We visited Stirling, the castle and the Wallace Monument, the Falkirk Wheel, Campbell castle, and did a lovely walk in Dollar Glen.

The apartment itself was very well put together, with a great kitchen, lovely views out of the windows, and a nice cozy place to sit. The owners met us when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed for our week.

This is a lovely part of Scotland to base yourself in, and the castle was a great home to come back to.

Guestbook comments from the manager

An excellent location to countless places of interest in the surround areas. Very well equipped and high level of décor in the accommodation, defiantly felt special to be staying in a castle. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Situated in Central Scotland in beautiful country setting but convenient driving distance to historic sights of Stirling and to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Excellent location to use as a base for golfing, touring or walking/hiking holiday. Luxurious furnishings and fittings. Castle is located on beautifully landscaped grounds with lovely views of Ochil Hills.

Golf: Ideal central base for golfing holiday. Gleneagles is only 14km. St. Andrews is within easy drive. Numerous fine local courses including Dollar, Muckart and Tulliallan. Very near major road links to travel to Ayrshire, Lothian and other courses.
