Dollarbeg Castle, just to the south of the Clackmannanshire town of Dollar, was one of the last baronial style buildings of its type to be built in Scotland.

Surrounded by three acres of beautiful gardens, and commanding great views of the Ochil Hills, the castle’s vast Main Hall has been imaginatively converted to create a one-of-a-kind apartment for up to four guests.

The stunning accommodation features grand vaulted ceilings, picture windows, vintage-style furnishings and high-end 21st century facilities.The spacious Great Hall itself is on the first floor, with open plan spaces for cooking, dining, and lounging in style – with a regal backdrop of embroidered sofas, gilded mirrors and polished oak floors.Downstairs there are two luxurious bedrooms – a kingsize master with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, and a double room with private bathroom.

Enjoy the castle gardens for a relaxing staycation, or venture further afield to Ochil Hills Woodland Park with its wondrous array of woodland walking routes.
