Welcome

Dairsie Castle is a unique self-catering property sleeps up to 14 guests. Located close to St. Andrews and Edinburgh, Dairsie is an ideal setting for a family holiday, a birthday or for exploring the heart of Scotland.

First sited in the 12th century, Dairsie has been the location of secret Scottish parliaments, military sieges, and a safe haven for escapee monarchs (James VI and I in 1583). After a long period of housing the local Archbishops of St. Andrews, and passing through the hands of various Scottish peerage, it was left to ruin in the 19th century. It was bought and rebuilt as a family home in 1992 by the current owner who, whilst ensuring that it had all the modern comforts of a family home, worked hard to restore the castle to its original Medieval character.

The interior of Dairsie is infused with interesting artworks and sculptures, which tell the story behind the castle. The six bedrooms all have a character of their own and the large Great Hall, complete with a Medieval-sized fire place, is fit for any feast! On the top floor there is an open gallery space, lined with paintings and antiques, which is perfect for hosting receptions and parties. Or if you just want to relax, there is a cozy carpeted living room with a TV and comfy armchairs.
