The newly constructed Glenskirlie Castle in the heart of Scotland is the
first new castle to be built in the country in the 21st century.Fifteen individually themed bedrooms - including two luxurious 100 square
metre suites - have been named after roses with the floral theme carried on
throughout the castle?s interior design features.
The room names which include New Dawn, Cupid, Sexy Rexy, Maiden’s Blush and
Bourbon Queen were selected with input from the UK’s leading rose expert
Situated amid lush gardens in the village of Banknock in Stirlingshire,
Glenskirlie Castle is owned and operated by the Macaloney family.
They are also celebrating the 25th anniversary of opening their Glenskirlie

with sunken baths, separate dressing rooms and walk-in wardrobes, lounge

true” and added: “The new hotel opens up so many opportunities for our
clients to make their time at Glenskirlie more enjoyable and relaxing.
