16th Century Bed and Breakfast Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland

"This romantic 16th century pink castle, which is hidden away in a tree-lined park, close to the beautiful Banffshire Coast, was the home of the Gordon-Duff family until the late 20th century. We took over the castle with 40 acres of grounds in 2007 and completely restored the interior of the castle to its former glory, by filling it with antique furniture and hanging the walls with our collection of mainly British Romantic Art.

The gardens, which had undergone considerable landscaping in Victorian times, is still a work-in-progress, but now boast picturesque waterfalls, several ponds, an orchard, woodland walks, a laburnum avenue, a rhododendron tunnel and a rose garden.

We would hope anyone who decides to stay with us will have a most memorable experience, staying in the castle and sharing many of the public rooms we love. All the reception rooms have wood-burning stoves or open fires for a very comfortable feeling on colder nights and fresh flowers, where possible - from our own gardens, are arranged throughout the interior of the castle.

As to cuisine, we try to locally source food for a great Scottish breakfast wherever possible; the sausages may even come from our very own Highland Cows on occasion!

We look forward to welcoming you to our home."
