NEW HOTEL IS SCOTLAND’S FIRST CASTLE OF THE 21ST CENTURY Friday 10 August 2007 PDF Print SCOTLAND’S newest hotel has opened its doors. The newly constructed Glenskirlie Castle in the heart of Scotland is the first new castle to be built in the country in the 21st century. Fifteen individually themed bedrooms – including two luxurious 100 square metre suites – have been named after roses with the floral theme carried on throughout the castle’s interior design features. The room names which include New Dawn, Cupid, Sexy Rexy, Maiden's Blush and Bourbon Queen were selected with input from the UK's leading rose expert Peter Beales. Situated amid lush gardens in the village of Banknock in Stirlingshire, Glenskirlie Castle is owned and operated by the Macaloney family. They are also celebrating the 25th anniversary of opening their Glenskirlie House Restaurant which sits on land adjacent to the new castle. The Castle’s honeymoon suites feature four poster beds, turreted bathrooms with sunken baths, separate dressing rooms and walk-in wardrobes, lounge and dining areas. Bespoke designed stained glass windows and doors feature in the Castle’s new bar-grill restaurant which offers a relaxed evening dining option. For more fine dining guests are able to use the adjacent Glenskirlie House restaurant. The Castle is also offering wedding reception facilities with a purpose-designed function suite seating up to 120 guests. The bar-grill restaurant doubles as the ceremony room making the bespoke designed stained glass windows the ideal photo backdrop when couples elect to marry on-site. Glenskirlie is easily accessible via motorway links from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling. It also serves as an ideal base for accessing the tourist attractions of the heart of Scotland. Attractions such as Stirling and Edinburgh Castles, the Falkirk Wheel, the Trossachs, Glasgow's Kelvingrove Museum are all less than an hour's drive away from the hotel. General Manager Colin Macaloney described the castle as "our dream come true" and added: "The new hotel opens up so many opportunities for our clients to make their time at Glenskirlie more enjoyable and relaxing. "With our location being so central in the heart of Scotland it also provides tourists with the perfect base from which to see much of what is the best in the country in terms of tourism attractions." Room rates for bed and breakfast start from £145 per night. The suites are available for a special introductory rate of £295 per night.
