This is a private and self-contained apartment inside an Edwardian historic castle. Lovingly restored to the highest specs, but with all the charming original details: the art deco spiral staircase, blond wood floor, and classic windowpanes. Flooded with lights, full of modern comforts (speedy wifi, Smart TV, biomass heating) 2000 acres of glen walks, forests, beaches, lochs, gardens & waterfalls to explore. Vast lawn for games & courtyard for BBQ. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 comfortably.

The space
A fascinating fusion unfurls inside an Edwardian Castle in form of the apartment. There's an unusual architectural interplays within this unique Castle apartment, hidden down a private drive in deep Scottish countryside. At first glance, the Apartment is grandly presented inside a 19th-century castle, but a closer inspection reveals contemporary features dovetailed into the original design, cleverly expanding the space and light, to create a luxury self-catering homestay that's bespoke down to the last detail.

Traditional vintage charm combines with boutique flair inside, with many secret spots to sit and absorb the tranquil grounds. Every effort has been made to preserve original features of the Castle, including the stripped-back blond hardwood floor, and the art deco spiral stairs case from a Glaswegian company at the height of its industrial heyday. History buffs will particularly delight at the original furniture, art works and artifacts dotted throughout the space.

With its double-floor loft style, the apartment will appeal to those with passion for architecture and history. Persian rugs cover the gorgeous reclaimed wood floor, original to the Castle. An arcadia mural stands prominently in the living room and family space. Mid-century leather sofa and gold coffee table, alongside leather rocking chairs and an upcycled wood burning stove will make sure you lounge in true Mad-Men style. A modern kitchen with muted jade colours and breakfast bar will encourage lengthy lingerings alongside poached eggs. With a nod to mid-century inspiration, ghost chairs around the dining area opens up the space to connect the kitchen and the lounge.

Four bedrooms make slumberous havens. Plush wall-to-wall carpets are throughout the top floor, alongside three very spacious full bathrooms. The collection of beds in the apartment is definitely something to write home about: Italianate canopy bed, 18th-century antique mahogany single beds, linen-upholstered and brass-studded rococo bed, and the grand colonial style reclaimed wood bed will ensure the sweetest sleeps.
