Old Rowallan Castle dates from the 12th Century and has been lovingly restored.
Nestled in the centre of Rowallan Estate, it is the ancestral home of the Mures & Campbells. It is a highly unique space and acknowledged as the finest specimen of Renaissance Castle Architecture - still boasting original features.
With a 19 hole Championship Golf Course designed by Ryder Cup winning Captain Colin Montgomerie on its door step and the much acclaimed Glasshouse Restaurant only a short walk away.

The space
This is an unique opportunity to be King or Queen of your own castle! We have four large bedrooms, three with superking beds and one double bed, with the two superkings able to be changed to twins if required. All the beds are made up with 500tc Egyptian cotton. Luxurious bathrobes and Arran Aromatic toiletries are provided for the use of guests. Two of the bedrooms are ensuite, whilst two share a spacious bathroom. There is also the option to add two single sofa beds, which can be set up in the Castle Gallery within the turrets!
There is a well equipped kitchen with a large table and chairs and a small dishwasher. Space does not permit a washer/dryer, but we can provide a laundry service for a small fee, please enquire on check-in. We also have a grand dining room for more formal occasions, and if wished our chefs can cater for you, with advance warning! Our top gallery provides the perfect setting to relax after a day either exploring the surrounding area or out on the course. Equipped with a 55 inch TV, luxurious sofas, 6 foot pool table, card table with numerous games & several musical instruments; there is plenty available for an evenings entertainment. As it is a 12th Century listed building, the stairs may be uneven in places and some door frames are lower, so beware of bumping your head!

Guest access
The castle is entirely private so all rooms can be used exclusively by guests. Unfortunately, the Castle is not suitable for wheelchair access.
