This magnificent Scottish Baronial castle is a Grade B listed building designed by the world renowned architect Alexander 'Greek' Thomson in 1852. Recently renovated to its former glory, the castle has stunning views of Loch Long and the Argyll hils.

The space

The Castle can sleep up to 24 people with up to 11 double bedrooms, most having four posters and 5 having ensuite facilities.
There are 5 reception rooms, including an 800 sq ft ballroom, suitable for entertaining and music events, a drawing room, a morning room, a dining room and an informal sitting room. On-site parking provides space for up to 20 cars and all amenities, shop, post office etc. are 5 minutes walk. Closer to hand, there is a beautiful shingle beach just 200 metres away and Cove Sailing Club is also a two minute walk.

All the rooms are individually decorated and furninshed giving each its own unique feel and character from grandeur to cosiness, from chic to homely. To make sure you have that true feeling of pampering and luxury at the end of a hard day we use the finest designer bed linens from Ralph Lauren, Yves Delorme, Christy and the White Company. Bathrooms are in traditional Scottish tongue and groove style but with contemporary touches of Jacuzzi baths, spa shower cabin and a slipper bath. Complementary exclusive soaps and shower products and soft fluffy bathrobes round off the luxury.

Four of the six receptions rooms have real open fires for wood or coal for cosy winter nights or just to give you a warm glow all year round. If you fancy a breath of fresh air, there are also extensive grounds with woodlands and parkland to stroll round and explore.

Interaction with guests

A part-time off-site housekeeper is available to meet and greet you, show you round the property and be on-call for any problems or issues that might arise.

Other things to note

Full self-catering amenities are available including free towels and linen, Sky satellite TV and complimentary coal and logs. We also provide guests with a complimentary Mark & Spencer luxury hamper including wine.

What an amazing place. Authentic historic opulence. We had some glitches with the heating but they got sorted out. It isn't pristine, but this isn't a swanky modern build, so the level of comfort was just right for us. We were lighting open fires in 3 rooms which was great fun, and you wouldn't want brand new pale coloured carpets at risk of getting grubby. The dining room is simply grand. The place does actually lend itself to two potential parties as a small door almost hidden behind the main stairs gives access to multiple floors below the main entrance level. The levels below are much more modern and have a separate entrance, but would share the same car park. I was glad we had sole occupancy but with proper communication and expectation setting you'd probably be almost unaware of a second group. Of course you really want the main castle. We arrived a bit early and the caretaker was still finishing. She was very nice and welcoming, and the owners who were away phoned and texted to check all was ok.

Had my 50th birthday party here and loved it. Great house for 15 of us. The place is imperfectly perfect just what you would expect from houses like that. Great staff especially the housekeeper who was very helpful. Would recommend the place.

Cove is a beautiful area and this property was amazing. We had the whole place to our group of 18 and it had plenty of room and beds. We were very happy with the property. I would recommend a stay here. The views are stunning. Dele and Bunmi are great.

The setting is beautiful; the castle is fantastic; and the whole experience was wonderful for us (glorious sunshine did help, admittedly). We all had an amazing time, with Moray available to help us settle in and to answer questions throughout the weekend. We really couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

Craigrownie Castle provided the perfect setting for our weekend of food, fun, and studying (for exams)! The kitchen was well-equipped for us to host our own formal dinners and the many rooms on the main floor provided ample space for us to stretch, relax, and connect. There was a hamper and bottle of wine welcoming us as well as an endless supply of firewood for the many fireplaces. Dele was highly communicative and went out of his way to help answer all of our questions. I'd highly recommend this lovely home as a retreat for any group of friends of family.

Upon arriving at the property, there were considerably less available bedrooms than advertised on Airbnb (including one with a broken double bed). We are a company of 13 males and 4 females and this situation led to an unworkable and highly unprofessional sleeping arrangement. After communicating the situation to the Host and not being granted access to the additional rooms (as advertised on Airbnb) or any other resolution, we were forced to sacrifice common areas of the property to use as makeshift bedrooms with guests camping on sofas and floors, In being forced to use these common areas as makeshift bedrooms, we were also denied the advertised space for our 17 staff members to comfortably socialise. Unfortunately is it not clearly stated on the listing that this Entire home is actually separated into two occupancies. If this was made clear to us during conversation before confirming and paying for the booking we could have come to a better solution or in fact not booked to stay at the property.
