Situated only some 200 yards from Culcreuch Estate Lodges, the Castle is first approached from either end of its crescent drive, passing old specimen trees and open fields in which sheep and Highland cattle often roam.
Forming the centrepiece of Culcreuch Estate's magnificient 1,600 acres of park, woodland and private lochs, Culcreuch Castle is an elegant, turreted sight and enjoys views out to the striking Stirlingshire landscape from all of its four storeys.
The Castle is furnished in an unpretentious fashion, mixing the elegance of stone fireplaces, old portraiture and gothic mirrors with the quaint, and an easy-going mood in its offerings as the 3-star Culcreuch Castle Hotel it has been for over twenty years.
The cosy Drawing Room on the first floor has inviting chairs, old furnishings, a fine fireplace, plenty of books and a view out across the loch. It's an appealing spot for morning coffee or a lazy afternoon if you want a change from your Lodge.
There are some charming features in the Castle, such as the marble fireplaces and part of the original spiral staircase.
The Laird's Hall, the largest of the public rooms, is now furnished with period antiques and is ideal for formal banquets or a range of social and corporate events.
The Carved Entrance Hall at the Castle is often used for receiving Wedding Guests, one of the most popular events at Culcreuch Castle.
All in all, Culcreuch Castle is a most interesting place that you must visit when you are at the Estate Lodges.
