Steeped in history, visited by both Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie, this home has character and charm. It is an exceptionally interesting “B” listed castle. Sympathetically restored by its current owners, it provides a magical yet welcoming and comfortable holiday home. With its spiral staircases, painted beamed ceilings, stone vaulted rooms and thick walls Plane Castle is full of atmosphere. The period detail is everywhere and yet you have comfortable warm bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms and splendid public rooms to make you comfortable. Perfectly positioned near Stirling, Plane Castle has ready access to Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as being an ideal spot to explore the north.
