Carlowrie Castle is a 19th Century mansion house set amidst a 32-acre estate on Edinburgh’s doorstep. Sympathetically restored the house and its grounds create a remarkably lavish retreat that blends rich heritage with modern elegance and luxurious comfort. It is a stunning luxury exclusive-use property and events venue for corporate use, celebrations and special occasions. From the main entrance the vista to the grand hallway opens out to a light-flooded atrium with original flagstone floor and sweeping staircase to the upper level bedrooms. Carlowrie’s public rooms include a lounge, which has an exquisite black and white marble floor; a library with tall ornate bookcases, decorative cornicing and open fireplace. The contemporary interiors, scale and proportion of the rooms provide a dramatic showcase for the owner’s collection of Urban and Pop Art. The newly built Orangery with its hand-laid tumbled parquet floor and picture windows on all sides that romantically diffuse light and air throughout the space, is the perfect backdrop for weddings and special events. Sleeping 18 guests, Carlowrie Castle has seven beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms on the upper level, with bathrooms featuring quarried Italian marble tiling, freestanding nickel and copper baths, walk-in showers and wireless speakers. The bedrooms are fitted with handmade beds and cabinetry and the bedding is equally as plush. On the lower ground sits ‘Carlowrie One’: a deluxe 115m2 two-bedroom, two-bathroom self-contained apartment with private courtyard, wood-burning stove and bespoke kitchen. Guests are able to take advantage of activities such as tennis, yoga, personal training, shooting and a range of spa treatments. The Castle is located eight miles west of Edinburgh and 10 minutes from Edinburgh International Airport.

Simply stunning, amazing staff from.start to finish. Food was scrumptious as was the wine pairings. Decor throughout the castle is lavish, luxurious and beautifully done. If only I am could put the day on a go slow or come back to stay for a night!
