Great Castle stay

Pros: Everything
Cons: Some of the furniture could be a little sturdier in the room
Location: Location is near Edinburgh and close to major roads Fantastic location to spend in the gardens and close to Rosslyn Chapel and Rosslyn Ruins.
Wow, we have always wanted to stay in a Castle and we were lucky enough to have the Dalhousie room. Large 4 poster bed (very comfy) and a room you could swing 10 cats in. Had a great bath which set us up for a fantastic meal in the Dungeon. Spent time walking around the grounds and visiting the Hawks and Owls. There is an area to test your Archery skills as well. If you are looking for an out there experience try this fantastic castle
