Located near Stirling in Central Scotland, Culcreuch Castle Hotel has been the ancestral seat of the Scottish Clan Galbraith for over 700 years. Culcreuch Castle is one of Scotland's oldest hotels, with the main hotel building dating from the 14th century. Set in the beautiful countryside of picturesque Scotland, and the centerpiece of 1,600 acre Culcreuch Estate,, Culcreuch Castle is also in close proximity to top-quality shopping in nearby Stirling, or the major Scottish Cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. All the hotel public rooms are decorated in period style and furnished with antiques, giving the aura and grace of a bygone age of Scotland's past. Log fires create warmth and intimacy and the candlelit evening meals in the paneled hotel Dining Room make for a most romantic occasion, well complimented by freshly prepared local produce and a carefully selected wine cellar. A full Scottish breakfast is included with your stay, and is an experience in itself, being served in Culcreuch Castle Hotel 's Dungeon Diner within the 700-year-old vaults.
Rooms & Amenities
Culcreuch Castle offers ten individual bedrooms within the main Castle building, each furnished and decorated with traditional Scottish taste.

Fine Dining Restaurant:
Culcreuch Castle Hotel's first floor Fine-Dining Restaurant features elegant candlelit à la carte dining.
Back when the chiefs of the Clan Galbraith called for victuals, kitchen staff had to make do with whatever simple ingredients they had at hand. But that included fresh salmon and trout, all manner of game, rich tangy cheeses and, in season, wonderful vegetables, wild mushrooms and berries. Fresh Scottish produce is still the basis of what is done at the castle today, although your meal is served with rather more imagination, and much better manners!
The Dungeon Diner:
The Dungeon Diner Restaurant at Culcreuch Castle Hotel is located within the original Tower itself and is a great place to eat out if you are looking for somewhere unique in Central Scotland, within an easy drive from Glasgow or Stirling.
With its burnished stone walls and despite the name, it is a very atmospheric, warm, friendly place, with a full and varied bar meal menu to suit all tastes. It is an especially cozy proposition in Winter, with an open fire blazing in the Bar. Truly a Scottish experience to remember and to tell your grandchildren some day!
