Marc, one of our Castle Experts, shares with us his favourite castle, and why...
Aikwood Tower is a five-bedroom tower house in the heart of Selkirk that's perfect for both weekend getaways and week-long stays!
Since joining the Celtic Castles team in October 2013, I have always been drawn towards Aikwood Tower for what is, in my opinion, a perfect mixture of both old and new; the exterior is that of an authentic tower castle in the Scottish borders, and yet its interior would not look out of place in a modern design house.
Not only was I intrigued by just how beautiful a property Aikwood was, but the fact that it is located only about thirty minutes away from Glentress Forest was a big plus-point too; the number-one trail centre in the UK is must-visit for all mountain-bike enthusiasts out there! I think it's safe to say that waking up in the luxury that is Aikwood Tower and going for a spin around Glentress would be my idea of the ideal holiday, and it's certainly something I plan to do in the future!More »
