Have you always wanted to visit a castle in Scotland? Do you want to experience medieval histories like a king or a queen? Tenon Tours offers various day tours to different castle attractions all over the country. We also provide the ability to stay in castle accommodations to all of our travelers. There are many types of castle properties, from authentic castle hotels and modern castle hotels to hotels next to or on castle grounds.

Authentic castle hotels are unique in Scotland, either derived from the original castle or renovated versions of the actual castle. Authentic castle hotels range in star level ratings, price and levels of luxury. You’ll feel nothing short of royalty when booking one of these castle hotels in Scotland.

1. ATHOLL PALACE

First on our list is Atholl Palace. This four-star luxury hotel offers Tenon travelers a plethora of amenities from tennis and mini-golf to an indoor swimming pool and a full-service spa. But what really makes this stay a unique experience is the 48 acres of property that it sits on. The grounds are lush with gardens and forests, complete with a Japanese garden, winding river and duck pond. Atholl Palace is located just a couple of miles from the nearby train station, which makes for easy and convenient access to nearby golf courses and distilleries.

2. DALHOUSIE CASTLE

Another 4-star castle hotel in Scotland to make you feel like royalty is the Dalhousie Castle. You’ll feel truly at ease while indulging in everything this secluded property has to offer (including a library and chapel) even though it is only 8 miles from Edinburgh. If you’re feeling particularly outdoorsy, you can try your hand at archery or even falconry. Or, perhaps you’d rather a dram of whisky or afternoon tea — either way, this is sure to please even the most discerning of travelers.

3. DORNOCH CASTLE

Next on our list is Dornoch Castle. This 15th-century castle has been refurbished with all the amenities and creature comforts a traveler might expect while still representing the original atmosphere and history. As a result, guests can enjoy outdoor activities such as horseback riding, fishing and golfing. In fact, the Royal Dornoch Golf Club is the third oldest golf course in the entire world!

4. FONAB CASTLE

Onto number four, Fonab Castle. Fonab Castle is the perfect choice for those looking for all the features a castle hotel in Scotland has to offer while adding a modern twist. For instance, activities are seemingly endless: you can take your pick from archery, horseback riding, cycling, skiing, fishing, golfing and more. But what truly makes this 5-star castle hotel a royal stay is impeccable service.

5. STONEFIELD CASTLE

Last but certainly not least is Stonefield Castle. Built in 1837 and set on 60 acres of land, this bespoke castle hotel is a beautiful example of Baronial architecture. Relax by the shores of Loch Fyne, wind down from a long day in the castle library or hotel bar or take a boat ride to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool, the third-largest natural whirlpool in the world.
