“Fantastic atmospheric castle for a large party”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked this as a venue for a surprise birthday party for my husband (18 of us). The location was easy to get to from central Scotland and the castle was a true wow on arrival. The whole venue and grounds were well maintainened and portrayed a sense of grandeur that was exactly what I was looking for. The bedroms were clean, cosy and comfortable and the public rooms were spacious, well furnished and perfect for our purpose. A banquet dinner was provided by the venue's recommended caterers and was well received by all my guests.

My husband had no idea what was going on - he thought we were going to a romantic dinner for two - and I can't thank Sonja enough for colluding with us to keep the surprise going right till the end! Our friends are still talking about Plane Castle and I am sure we will remember it fondly for years to come. No doubt some of us will be back!

“Stunning, quirky, fabulous and we felt so at home”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Completely loved our surprise weekend in this beautiful castle known locally as Cock-a-Bendy Castle. The owners Steve and Sonja could not have been more helpful or obliging. The grounds are gtreat to explore and the bedrooms stunning. Comfortable beds, clean as a whistle, wel eqipped kitchens and stunning grrat hall - perfect for a black tie birthday dinner.
Even though it is historical and grand it fell really homely.

“Wedding of Rosie Bailey and Chris Hobson”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned from a fabulous three days at the wonderful Plane Castle celebrating my daughters wedding. We were 18 adults and 4 children and we had an amazing time from beginning to end. The accommodation was great and the wedding in the Tower and reception in the main hall was superb! Sonja and Steve were so helpful and a great source of information and advice. I am 54 now and these days I am hard to please, but this was the best value for money I can remember in a long time. The whole thing was magical and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm already thinking of going back for my 60th celebrations!

“Our very own castle for three days”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our family (2 adults and 4 school age kids) stayed in the Tower at Plane Castle for 3 nights in late June. The stay was absolutely perfect! The kids had plenty of space (indoors and outside) to explore without having to worry about disturbing neighbors in a hotel, and they particularly enjoyed our meals in the medieval dining hall. Steve and Sonja were terrific hosts and helped us with both on-site questions and insights into the local area. The kids keep asking when we will go back to 'our' castle ... need to plan our next trip to Scotland!
