Dalnaglar Castle is set upon a naturally elevated site in the heart of Glenshee, which translates as 'The Valley of Peace' and is known locally as 'the fairy glen'. Originally an 18th century hunting lodge, Dalnaglar Castle was commissioned by Lord Clyde, Queen Victoria's banker, and designed by Her Majesty's architect from Balmoral.

The Castle is a wonderful location for an intimate wedding, as well as a superb venue for anniversaries, birthdays and reunions. Situated in a tranquil and peaceful glen, it is also a great location for business meetings.

Dalnaglar has eight en suite double/twin rooms, plus two rooms with a shared bathroom. Each room is individually designed and has a character all its own. Public rooms include a comfortable sitting room, well stocked library, elegant dining room over-looking the garden and a reception room, all with their own fireplaces. Guests have exclusive use of the castle and grounds. Housekeeping and cook can be arranged, if required, and dogs are welcome in the outside kennels.

The estate is situated on the banks of the River Shee and has a beat just under a mile offering excellent salmon and trout fishing. There is also trout fishing on our private Loch. A ghillie is available upon request.

We can also offer driven or walked up days, and duck flighting can be arranged. Red deer and roe deer stalking can be arranged on nearby estates.

For the outdoor enthusiast there is clay pigeon shooting on the estate, hill walking to experience the breathtaking scenery. Mountain bikes, falconry and pony trecking can be arranged locally.

For the golfer there are over 100 golf courses in the surrounding area, including Gleneagles, Carnoustie, St Andrews and Rosemount.

Set amidst the atmospheric Scottish Highlands, Dalnaglar Castle provides the perfect escape from the strains of everyday life.
