With the stunning back-drop of the Perthshire countryside and Cairngorms National Park, the sympathetically and lovingly restored seven bedroom castle is a fantastic base to enjoy time away with friends or family in the Highlands of Scotland. Activities on offer range from hiking, cycling, riding and golf to dining, whisky tasting and relaxing around the open fire in the Great Hall. When the snow starts to fall, skiing and snowboarding can also be enjoyed in the surrounding mountains.
Ogilvie Castle is laid out over five floors all accessed by a spiral staircase. This amazing accommodation has been restored and interior designed to an extremely high specification. Sleeping sixteen guests in separate rooms, each with their own individual character, makes the castle a stay to remember. The rooms benefit from storage heaters which make the evenings warm and cosy whatever the season. The Great Hall, with its elaborately hand painted ceiling is perfect for everyone to gather to dine, relax, dance, read and generally just enjoy time together.
A state-of-the-art fully fitted Chalon kitchen with a large range cooker and dishwasher make meal times an experience in itself, especially with a wide range of Le Creuset cooking equipment and all the utensils you can think of. Deliveries can be ordered from one of the recommended local suppliers or external catering for all or part of your stay can be arranged.
On the first floor, the Great Hall is a fabulous space for living and entertaining and is the heart of the house. Spanning the entire width of the property and furnished in a traditional style it's the perfect setting for a memorable meal. The magnificent dining table comfortably seats sixteen and is fit for a banquet. Spend the evening seated by the roaring fire in the inglenook with a whisky in hand. There is a split staircase on this floor that leads to one of the four posted double bedrooms.
To the second floor in the master bedroom you will find a king size four poster Ralph Lauren bed, exquisite decor and its own turret. Features include beautiful antiques, grand paintings, a large sofa and open plan screened bathroom with roll top bath and free standing brass Drummonds shower.
To the third floor is a king size double room with four poster bed and to the fourth floor two more double rooms, one with en-suite shower room with WC. On this floor there is also the main bathroom with shower over the bath. Finally to the first floor where four singles can be found that could be linked up to make two doubles.
