Spacious self-contained apartment in a historic Scottish castle
This apartment is located in Cluny Castle’s western face; a stunning building steeped in history and a Category A listed private castle in Aberdeenshire. Situated a short 20 minute drive from Aberdeen airport and 30 minutes from the town centre, it has often been described by historians and archaeologists as 'As fantastical a baronial pile as can be found in eastern Scotland'.
It has belonged to the same family ever since it was built roughly 400 years ago, being passed down through the generations, and has been a stronghold of the Gordon clan housing various Dukes of Gordon and Clan Chieftains over the years.
The interior is equally as striking as the exterior with impressive halls and spectacular rooms all the while maintaining the feel of being a family home. Furthermore the grounds of Cluny have won gardening and horticultural awards and are also listed on the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland by Historic Scotland. It is assessed as "outstanding" in the work of art category and receives a high rating in the horticultural, and arboricultural categories due to the Wellingtonia trees planted in the 19th century.
Guests are welcome to enjoy extensive grounds which include woodlands, several ponds and gardens. In particular there is an arboretum of mature indigenous trees and a walled garden.
Enjoy leisurely days out touring this lovely area, from the wonderful landscapes of Royal Deeside to the golden sands of the coastline from Aberdeen all the way to Banff. Aberdeen enjoys a cosmopolitan reputation and offers plenty of good restaurants, bars, theatres and shopping. The region boasts more castles per acre than anywhere else in the UK including the magnificent Castle Fraser that is only a 5 minute drive away. Within a 30 mile radius there is hill walking, pony trekking, ancient standing stone monuments and a number of golf courses. In addition both the famous ‘castle trail’ and whisky trail are accessible from Cluny.
Beach 25 miles. Shops and restaurants 5 miles (Westhill) / 10 miles (Inverurie), pub 1 mile. Aberdeen town centre 30 mins. Airport 20 mins.
Sleeping 9, the West Wing is a large self-contained part of the castle providing generously proportioned accommodation. It is decorated in a tastefully traditional style while incorporating a modern feel which is perfect for those who want an experience akin to that of a Scottish Laird while also not being distanced from every day home comforts.
Details of accommodation: 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, large sitting room, very spacious kitchen with Aga and wood burning stove, laundry/drying room, games room and parking for up to 3 vehicles. Please note that the West Wing does not have disabled access.
No smoking and no pets allowed.
The castle remains a private family home and while guests are encouraged to make the most of their stay it is requested that the privacy of the owners and nature of the grounds is respected at all times.
