Full description
A majestic, beautifully restored mini-castle, set in the heart of an historic estate close to the Scottish Highlands.

Sleeping up to four guests in style and comfort fit for royalty, East Gatehouse Lodge is part of Scotland's historic Monzie Estate.

An ideal base for exploring the Scottish Highlands, you'll be able to view the vast mountain ranges from the comfort of your garden (glass of bubbles in hand, of course!)  Set amongst the estate's 4,000 glorious acres, you'll have plenty of space to relax, amongst abundant wildlife and incredible natural scenery.

A self-contained mini-castle, East Gatehouse Lodge was expertly renovated in 2017, standing proudly at the heart of the estate.  Featuring elegant octagonal rooms and a turreted stairway, you'll feel impossibly grand as you explore your holiday surroundings.

Stylish and spacious throughout, there are plenty of opportunities to unwind with your loved ones. The large octagonal lounge is beautifully furnished with home-made cushions, curtains and lampshades, and floods with natural light by day. The room also features a crackling open fire that's ideal for gathering around by evening.

Fight over who gets to prepare mouthwatering feasts in the well-equipped kitchen, stylishly finished by the Monzie Joinery and a genuine pleasure to spend time in. Later on, enjoy the fruits of those culinary labours in the generous dining room.

As you head up the spiral stone staircase, discover a gorgeous Jack-and-Jill bathroom that connects the two bedrooms (one is a double, and the other a superking or twin - whichever you prefer).  The bathroom also features an original, cast-iron bath from Monzie Castle - simply fill with bubbles for the ultimate in regal indulgence! You'll also find a refreshing shower room that's ideal after a hard day's local exploring.

On balmy afternoons, why not head outdoors and into the large, furnished garden to catch up and watch the world go by? Amongst such immaculate surroundings, you'll find it impossible not to relax.

The friendly owners are always on hand for questions or advice about the local area and their favourite walks, peppered with ancient stone circles and imposing follies. You can even arrange a private tour of Monzie Castle, the oldest part of which dates all the way back to 1634, and with plenty of interesting stories to tell!

If you enjoy getting out and about in the car, prepare to immerse yourselves in some of the most beautiful and thriving parts of Scotland.  

The Highlands are a mere five minutes away, with Drummond Castle Gardens and Stirling Castle both easily accessible. You don't have to miss out on city pleasures, either - Glasgow and Edinburgh are just an hour away.

If you've always thought the regal life would suit you down to the ground, why not try it on for size? A stay at East Gatehouse Lodge is sure to leave you with a lasting taste for the finer things in life!
