Rooms and suites
Culcreuch Castle Hotel has ten bedrooms within the main Castle building, each individually furnished and decorated. All are en-suite, with Free Sat TV, internet access and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities. Most command quite unsurpassed views over the lawns, loch, woodlands of the estate and beyond to a kaleidoscope of hills and forests comprising the Endrick Valley and the Campsie Fells. Each Castle Room has it's own name and if you ask for a particular one when you book, we will do our best to satisfy your request. Our online reservations system shows which rooms are available on your dates and you can check or book a specific Suite or Bedroom from there.
Historic Room The Keep
Overlooking the Estate's North Drive and an array of exotic trees, glimpses of rabbits playing between the daffodils and rhododendrons are a common sight from this second-floor room situated in the original Tower with its six feet thick outside walls. Accommodation offered is a double 4-poster bed with en-suite shower room.
The Menzies Room
The Menzies Room is the only bedroom on the first floor and it offers a super king bed with en-suite facilities including a bath with shower over.
The view from the room looks over to the converted stable block, now Culcreuch Castle Hotel's Function Hall, with glimpses of the ancient Pinetum and views down the South Drive.
In 1890 the last of the Spiers family sold Culcreuch to Mr. J. C. Dunwaters, whose family had farmed in the parish and who was one of the proprietors of the Outram Press (once famous as owners and publishers of the Glasgow Herald). In 1901 he sold the estate to Walter (later Sir Walter) Menzies. The particulars of the sale can be seen framed on the passageway wall on the ground floor in the Castle. The Menzies family owned Culcreuch estate until 1984.
The smallest bedroom in the Castle itself, the Battlements Room, is nevertheless very cosy, offering a small double bed and ensuite bathroom with shower.
It is set at the top of the original 14th century Tower.
Its large skylight window (fitted with slatted blinds) makes the Battlements Room cheerfully bright but it is also quaint, with traditional fireplace and antique furniture.
Originally the private quarters of the 18th and 19th century Barons of Culcreuch, the Baron Suite is the largest of the Castle bedrooms and occupies a prime position on the top (third) floor overlooking the front of the Castle with breathtaking views across the front lawns and the loch to the Campsie Fells beyond. Accommodation includes a large 4-poster bed with lounge area and a large bathroom with corner bath and separate shower.
Situated at the top of the Castle, within the battlements area of the original 14th century Tower, the Honeymoon Suite exudes comfort and elegance both in decor and its dark ornate hardwood furnishings. Originally this was part of the Castle where warlike confrontation was the order of the day but nowadays this former role has been replaced by more romantic activities.
The Honeymoon Suite accommodation includes a large 4-poster bed with canopy, a small lounge area and large bathroom with corner bath and separate shower.
This second-floor 4-poster suite overlooks the front of the Castle and the loch, with stunning views to the Campsie Fells beyond. It has a bathroom with corner bath and separate shower, plus all the usual in-room facilities, such as TV and tea/coffee making.
In 1632 Culcreuch Estate was purchased by Robert Napier, second son of Lord Napier of Merchiston. The Napier family held the estate for five generations and are credited with building the north and east extensions to the original tower in 1721.
The Dungeon Restaurant at Culcreuch Castle Hotel is located within the original Tower itself and is a great place to eat out if you are looking for somewhere unique in Central Scotland, within an easy drive from Glasgow or Stirling.
Within its burnished stone walls it is a very atmospheric, warm and friendly place with a full and varied menu to suit all tastes. It is especially cosy in Winter with an open fire blazing in the Bar. Truly a Scottish experience to remember. Draft and bottled beers plus an excellent selection of fine malt whiskies from throughout Scotland are always available as well as wines, soft drinks, tea and coffee.
Approached along the half-mile, tree-lined driveway through beautiful parkland with the loch shimmering in the distance...
There can be no more dramatic setting for your wedding than Culcreuch Castle, nestling beneath the Fintry Hills and cloaked in the Galbraith Woodland.
Leave the world behind and lose yourself in your celebrations...
We offer each couple their very own fairytale castle for a unique and magical day!
