The luxury castle for whisky connoisseurs
Extensively refurbished to the highest specifications during 2020 and 2021, Rothes Glen is a luxury
exclusive-use castle sleeping up to 30 guests. Our fully-staffed castle can cater to
your every need from traditional Highland banquets to picnics by the lochan and bespoke activities
in the local area and we pride ourselves on never saying no.
The Ground Floor
As you walk in the main entrance you cannot help but be stunned by the opulent hall with its Italian mosaic floor, crystal chandelier and sweeping staircase, all lit by the stain-glass laylight. The hall leads you to all our reception rooms packed with antiques, oil paintings and character.
We haven’t forgotten what the modern world has to offer and have excellent Wi-Fi beamed across the glen, with newly refitted electricity and plumbing throughout. There are formal drawing and dining rooms, a library, large snooker room, tasting room and whisky vault, and a magnificent newly refurbished
kitchen and breakfast room. All the reception rooms have huge original windows with fabulous views, open fireplaces and panelled ceilings and are furnished to the highest standard.
Whether feasting in the dining room, playing snooker with friends or enjoying a dram and the beautiful views, Rothes Glen is the perfect place to unwind, relax, and conduct business. Our kitchen is run by our wonderful chef Alan Robertson and dining can be in the sublime grand dining room, informal breakfast room, or, when weather permits, on our outdoor terraces (that doesn’t exclude bespoke picnics, sumptuous cream teas or light lunches which can be served wherever you choose). In the castle's centre is a large courtyard with extensive seating and heaters, a game larder, stores for shooting, fishing and outdoor games, and heated dog kennels.

1st and 2nd Floor
Our 14 en suite king-size bedrooms have been fully refurbished and all are marvellously generous in size. Each bedroom is unique and has been lovingly furnished and decorated to reflect the character of the castle. Every bedroom has a king-size bed, crisp cotton sheets and goose-down bedding and an abundance of fluffy white towels and luxury bath and body products. The beds are of the highest quality so whether you are in a four-poster or velvet sleigh bed a good night’s rest is inevitable.

Climb the winding staircase to the very top of the Rothes Glen tower and you reach our new whisky observatory. Wood panelled to mimic the inside of a whisky washback you can sit and enjoy the stunning views with a dram and telescope or read next to the fire in one of our tweed armchairs.
