Dundas Castle Launches Exclusive-Use Scottish Family Getaway

To mark the recognition of Edinburgh, Scotland being the UK’s best city to live and work, five-star Edinburgh residence, Dundas Castle, has opened its doors to offer an exclusive-use Scottish family getaway for its American guests.

Dundas Castle is secluded in the peaceful countryside of its own 400-acre Estate, and features turrets, impressive staircases, sumptuous bedrooms and roaring fires. The Castle, owned by Sir Jack Stewart-Clark and his wife, Lady Lydia, is available on an exclusive-use basis and offers a true historic Scottish experience. With accommodation in 17 beautiful bedrooms, Dundas Castle is the ideal location for experiencing Scottish culture, and for family fun and discovery. Guests are given complete private use of the Castle and its immediate grounds, allowing for a real home-from-home feel.

The Castle dates back to 1416 and is popular with Americans wanting to experience some genuine Scottish heritage and comfort. Guests will be truly spoilt for choice with the activities that are on offer at Dundas Castle. For those wanting sports-orientated activities, Dundas Castle provides its own nine-hole golf course, private squash and tennis courts, clay pigeon shooting, 4x4 off road driving course, or can organise its own Highland games on the lawn including falconry, Whisky tasting, and Highland dancing displays.

For those seeking a historical Scottish experience, guests can learn traditional Scottish skills such as weaving, dancing, bagpipe playing and drumming. Guests looking for more relaxing and leisurely ways of spending time on the Estate can explore the spreading lawns and woodlands, whilst trying to identify much of the resident wildlife, such as deer, buzzards, swans and hare. All will take place against the scenic Scottish backdrop of the 15th century Castle, where dining in the historic Stag Chamber is a highlight.

Owner, Sir Jack Stewart Clark, said: “Edinburgh has recently just been voted the UK’s best place to live, and so it’s great to be able to share my home with other families who are coming from further afield, so they can experience Scottish hospitality. The Castle really offers a homely stay, but with a focus on luxury and comfort. I am particularly happy to be welcoming American guests who want to learn about Scottish history and culture, with our wonderful combination of ease of access with privacy from the outside world.”

Dundas Castle is perfectly situated just 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, which has direct flights from New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Houston, Atlanta and Orlando. Dundas Castle is only 25 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh yet is nestled within its own 400 acres of secluded Estate, and so is an idyllic hideaway for family getaways, for those looking for privacy and minimal distractions, with a focus on luxury, comfort and a true home-from-home feel.
