Just outside the bustling city of Edinburgh, sits Dalhousie Castle. There are a variety of room options available. If you want an authentic stay within the castle itself, choose one of the many castle bedrooms. While the Castle Rock suites are beautiful, they are not within the castle itself. We booked the standard castle bedroom. With champagne and chocolates upon arrival, it’s easy to understand why they received the honor of Scotland’s Castle Hotel of 2016. Dinner in the Castle- Be sure to book a reservation to dine in the dungeon! Your dining experience begins in the Library for cocktails and h’ordeuvres. If only I had brought my candlestick and Scarlett dress it would have made for the perfect Clue set up. While sipping on your Scotch whiskey, the waiter asks you to place your dinner order. When you’re finally seated your food is delivered right to you without waiting! With the knights in shining armor standing guard and the candlelight setting the mood, we enjoyed a wonderful castle-perfect dinner together.
