Turin Castle (R)
Turin Castle is a stunning 17th Century property that sits in twenty acres of sweeping lawns with majestic views of the rolling Scottish countryside, between Aberdeen and Edinburgh. As well as the glorious surroundings, this exclusive castle has everything you need to experience the very best of Scottish country living.
Built in 1659 and relocated stone-by-stone from the loch in 1907, Turin Castle has all you ever wish for to make your stay special. The ten beautifully appointed suites have views of the gardens and beyond to the Angus Glens. Each with their own private bathroom, every room has been designed to provide a unique and luxurious experience for every guest.
Among the large range of public rooms this Scottish castle provides, the Music Room is home to the largest chandelier in the castle and a baby grand piano – the favourite place for the perfect Afternoon Tea and quiet moments. Many Scottish traditions and culture are waiting to be discovered in the books of the magnificent library as well as all around the property, starting by the cozy welcoming tartan lounge with fires and its tartan hues. And when it is time for a drink, the elegant Ogilvy Bar will be an exquisite place to taste a cocktail, unless you prefer to indulge in your favourite tipple or find yourself enchanted by a new one in the exceptional underground whisky and wine cellars.
Completing the historical property, the helipad will give you the opportunity to enjoy the amazing Scottish countryside from the air, welcome by the iconic stone circle, which is the perfect place for sundowners, a malt under the stars or a musical performance. It’s been the stage for Grammy winners, fireworks displays and many happy ever afters.
With a wealth of activities available for guests staying at Turin Castle, you will be delighted to enjoy the myriad of activities to do, from relaxing walks in rolling gardens for your exclusive use, an on-site six hole mini golf course, pétanque, croquet and table tennis - to a host of country pursuits and outdoor activities nearby, including walking, mountain-biking, hunting, stalking and fishing.
Only a 40-minute drive away from the castle, you will be awed by the history and the beauty of the monuments of Dundee, the UNESCO City of design. Set on the edge of the river Tay, the V&A Dundee was designed by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and presents the brilliance of Scottish creativity and the best of design from around the world. After visiting the McManus Art Gallery and Museum that offers a fascinating insight into the city as it has been at the heart of art and culture in the city since the end of the 19th century, immerse yourself in the maritime heritage of Dundee and experience one of the most heroic voyages of exploration in the Antarctic on the RRS Discovery.
The golf lovers will not miss to cross the Tay Rail bridge and explore the south of the bay to reach St Andrews, that welcomes the Old Course, which is renowned throughout the world as the ‘Home of Golf’. Carnoustie is only 20 minutes away too.
Among the architectural and historical elements the town offers, the castle, the historic university, the medieval streets and the gorgeous traditional buildings are masterpieces that will inspire your wonder.
