The Great Hall dominated by the wonderful vast log fire and exquisite hand painted ceiling is perfect for a celebratory dinner, business venue or an intimate wedding, which is complimented by the small and unique chapel on the ground floor. All who come to here learn to use the castle as their own and greatly enjoy the warmth of both its own unique charm and the magnificent outdoors that surround it.This Castle in Glen Isla is exquisitely positioned and set against a stunning backdrop of rugged Perthshire countryside. Perfect as a sumptuous bolt hole for total relaxation or alternatively, for those wishing to participate
