Ready When You Are


We hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and well during these challenging times.

We’re delighted to say that we’re now taking bookings from 31st July, government guidelines permitting. We can’t wait to be unlocking the gates and lowering the metaphorical drawbridge to welcome you back to Dalhousie Castle. 

If you’re in need of a little escapism right now, then our ancient fortress is surely one of the safest. Just eight miles from Edinburgh but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of city life, it’s the perfect spot to take in some woodland walks, astonishing history and feel like the proverbial prince or princess.

While you’ve been away, we’ve been quietly preparing for your return, reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure that our property is as safe as it possibly can be, for you and for us. It’s a big step to venture out from our safe cocoons, and the safety and wellbeing of everyone who passes through our doors continues to be our utmost priority.

Which is why you’ll notice that a few things have changed at Dalhousie Castle. Please take a moment to read through the precautions that we’re putting in place to keep everyone safe.

While our lives have been transformed over the past months, the landscapes around us, of course, have remain unchanged. Dalhousie is still a place to make memories, to bring to life 800 years of history and to enjoy the best of Scottish hospitality. Scotland’s secluded beauty spots and precious wildlife are just as magnificent – perhaps even more so – and we are ready to welcome you back.

Furthermore, you can book your next stay with the reassurance of free cancellations, flexible bookings and a guarantee that you’ll find the best rates when booking direct with us. 

We look forward to seeing you,

With all best wishes
James and the Team at Dalhousie Castle
