Wonderful stay at a gorgeous castle.
Dalhousie Castle is the ideal place if you're looking to stay in a castle in the Edinburgh area. It's about a 20 minute taxi ride from the city center which is just far enough to be out in the peaceful Scottish countryside. The castle itself is absolutely beautiful, and sits on grounds that are equally so, with archery, falconry, and several great walking paths.
The staff at the hotel were extremely nice and accommodating - we were even greeted by a nice gentleman in full Scottish garb who gave us a brief history of the castle.
The castle and grounds are very quiet and peaceful - fantastic for relaxing with a good book.
The food was absolutely spectacular, from the home-baked pastries that came with breakfast to the truly magnificent three course meal you can get through the Dungeon Restaurant, which I highly recommend.
Overall an amazing experience with my only regret being that we did not stay longer.
