Luxury Accommodation with 400 Years of History

Luxury Accommodation with 400 Years of History

If the turn of the year has made you think about getting away, then why not consider a break in one of the castle's luxury apartments.

Our high-end accommodation is in the heart of the castle so you can be surrounded by over 400 years of history and enjoy the tranquil parkland surroundings. 

There are five unique apartments to choose from, all furnished with en eclectic mix of contemporary features and items from the castle collection including portraits and furniture.

The three-bedroom Earl & Countess apartment was the former private quarters of the 14th Earl and Countess of Lauderdale. The two-bedroom Maitland apartment was once the castle laundries and a nod to its past is reflected with the Singer sewing machines in the hallway. The one-bedroom Glenburnie is named after the family's champion horse and the moor behind the castle. The Lauderdale is a one-bedroom apartment with a baronial style where the family tartan is used throughout. Finally, The Sculleries is a one-bedroom apartment over looking the castle gardens in an area that was once the castle's sculleries.

Just 40 minutes south of Edinburgh and close to the border with England, Thirlestane Castle is ideally placed as a base to explore south Scotland. Book a stay with us and let us recommend things to see and do.

Our apartments have everything you might need to self-cater for your stay but we can arrange a special meal in one of the State Rooms for an additional cost if you would like something extra special. We can also offer group bookings of multiple apartments and full catering if you would like.

Full details of all the apartments are available here where you can also check availability and book. Alternatively, you can ring Rhona in the office and she can talk through all the options on 01578 722430
