Escape to a Scottish Castle this Christmas

Dunskey Estate 

Dunskey is a stunning Edwardian castle set on an estate of 2,000-acres of rolling countryside near the coast in Portpatrick, Scotland. With its doors closed to the public for many years, when owners Ali Orr Eewing and Anne Tristine inherited the estate in 2017, they decided to open their home to the world.

There are larger or smaller group stays available for groups in the lodges within the stunning grounds and gardens.

Superbly maintained since its construction, it retains many of its original features including some of the original furniture.

There are 18 bedrooms and then 20 beds (over two wings) available at the estate which are also perfect for festive breaks. Smaller parties can also stay at the castle and lodges.

The food (created by 3-AA Rosette awarded Head Chef, Chris Stanley) marries local, seasonal fare with global influence, creating a fusion menu of world cuisine, curated through seasonal and local farm to table ingredients. 

The staff attend to your every need and the owners of the estate have organized falconry, cold swimming, sailing, archery and customized menus based on guests’ requests.
