Our review

Shieldhill Castle hotel is truly a hidden gem of the Scottish Hotel scene. Nestled closely by Tinto Hill the former residence of the Chancellor family, who inhabited the castle for over 800 years, has been lovingly restored by Mary Yuill and her team.

The hotel offers accommodation across three very interesting levels. The main house where you can enjoy the full splendour of Scots aristocratic style dating back hundreds of years. The Stable block allows you to enjoy stylish courtyard accommodation where the family pet is equally welcome. Finally, the latest addition are the quite splendid Swedish log cabins that give you a feel for traditional woodland living, (with the comfort of a fine hotel on your doorstep).

Shieldhill Castle is now one of the foremost wedding venues in Scotland and   has the benefit of being able to offer exclusive use for the big day with a wide range of wedding packages to suit all budgets.

It’s ideal for a well-earned short break for any couple or even group of friends looking for that ‘not yet had’ experience.

One of the most endearing qualities of Shieldhill Castle, is that you could be anywhere in the world, let alone an hour from either of Scotland’s major cities, such is the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful and less travelled part of Scotland. The hotel combines its unique location with a professional and truly warm Scottish experience from start to finish.

Staying in the main house gives you a feel for how life must have been for the aristocratic Scots and allows you to temporarily indulge yourself in a temporary notion of ‘lairdship.’ The wonderfully luxurious lounge with all its trappings of Scottish game and rural life is an excellent space to relax before dinner and enjoy the excellent selection of wines beers and spirits that are on offer. The friendly and attentive service will you only add to your newly found (but temporary) status.

For those looking forward to the meals the hearty portions and well-cooked and presented dinner and breakfast the next morning made all the effort to get here more than worthwhile.

A good night’s sleep will be enjoyed with the sleep experience enhanced with mattress toppers to give that extra luxury to your rest.

You may not yet be familiar with Shieldhill Castle, but my advice would be to put it on your list for a short break, you will reap the benefit of the tranquillity and excellent Scottish hospitality.
