Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Aqueous Spa

A Christmas to Remember

Imagine waking up in Scotland’s oldest inhabited castle on Christmas morning.

A fortress fit for a king or queen with a relaxed home-from-home atmosphere, complete with soaring Christmas trees, a warren of staircases and the possibility of a glimpse of snow from the many arrow slits. Add to this our 35 beautifully appointed bedrooms (some with four poster beds, naturally) and award-winning fine dining from our AA rosette Dungeon Restaurant and you have all the ingredients for a magical Christmas.
