Sometimes, the best adventures are those close to home…

…and ‘staycations’ will be on the cards for many this year when planning their getaway.

This year we’ve paired up with our most trusted private rental properties to create the ultimate exclusive escapes, the perfect staycation for families and friends.

Our partner properties are located in the most sought after parts of the country including the Cairngorms, the Highlands, Perthshire and Edinburgh.

Each one is nestled within its own private estate, boasting perfectly manicured grounds and abundant green spaces teeming with wild flowers.

If you always dreamt of living the castle lifestyle, then Borthwick Castle is sure to fulfil that dream.

Immerse yourself in magnificent opulence while you absorb 500 years of incredible history; Borthwick Castle was once a retreat for Mary Queen of Scots.

With views over to the Isle of Mull, the quintessentially bijou – yet 13th century –  Mingary Castle sits proudly on its own rocky outcrop overlooking the west coast. It’s truly one of Scotland’s hidden gems.

Travel inland to what has been described as a fairytale Castle, Turin. Located near Arbroath, Turin is just a short drive to Scotland’s most iconic golf courses including St Andrews.

In picturesque Aberfeldy, Dun Aluinn is an exquisitely designed private house with sumptuous interiors. Its natural cedar hot tub overlooking the Tay valley is just heavenly!

If the rugged Cairngorms are calling you, then there is no better hideaway than Candacraig. An immaculate mansion much sought after as a luxury retreat, and with proximity to Speyside it is an ideal base for whisky lovers.

Your Stay

Our partner properties are available for 3 night (or longer) stays, so are perfect whether you’re planning a short luxury escape or you want to experience the best of Scotland over a longer stay.

Your comfort is our priority, so whether you’re out exploring the wilds or simply relaxing indoors, your personal butler will look after your every need. Nothing beats top-notch service, and our butlers have all been trained in Britain’s royal households. 

We work with you to meet your requirements, and we liaise with the property owners and managers, and all suppliers to ensure a smooth experience for our guests.

We work with award winning chefs who will dazzle and delight your tastebuds! Our chefs will also create portable delicacies for those days when nothing short of a mouthwatering artisan picnic will power you through on your adventure in the great outdoors.

We take care of every detail for our guests, and are full of winning ideas for creating the ultimate Scottish experience. 


Once you’ve chosen your exclusive property we’ll support your plans and make your time in Scotland truly memorable.

Whilst whisky is our speciality, we also arrange a wonderful selection of activities such as golf, fishing, shooting, foraging, tailored guided walks, off-road safaris, sea-safaris and otter adventures, shopping excursions and far more.

We will take care of all the planning on your behalf, allowing you to just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Whether your preferred mode of travel is by private train, jet, helicopter or chauffeur driven vehicle, we can arrange for you to be met upon arrival or meet you en-route, and you can rest assured that the house staff will be waiting to greet you with a warm welcome at your property.

Additional staff, including translators and nannies, can be arranged. So if you’re dreaming of an escape into the Scottish wilds to reconnect with yourself and your loved ones, we’ve got you covered.

Let us plan your perfect Scottish staycation, and really make this year count!
