You Can't Take The Scott Out of Scotland Hello again everyone: Well sometimes the best laid plans can go awry. Time to step into possibility and create another miracle. I'm sitting at the airport in Edinburgh, loving this computer at the Internet cafe and especially the mouse ( I've got to get one for my lap top soon so I don't keep loosing my …

Holy Smokes! We stayed in a HAUNTED CASTLE!

A travel blog entry by torontojim

We spent a night in a haunted castle outside Edinburgh!!! It wasn't cheap. It was downright expensive (about CDN$300/night). But two Castle lovers passing up the chance to stay at least ONE night in a castle? A haunted castle to boot?? Of COURSE we did! We stayed at Dalhousie Castle. Very old place, VERY nice, very elegant. I felt very out of place …

... the English....made famous in Braveheart. We went to the movies and saw Taken Two...well worth watching...but I don't think we need Taken Three. We hired a car and will set off to Cardiff, Wales.....I picked up the car and drove through the streets of Edinburgh early in the morning...just breaking dawn and few cars around....it felt like I was in a horse and cart driving through the ancient streets...it was great. Till next time ...

Edinburgh Castle, Mary King's Close, Royal Mile

... in, the closes, the plaster made with horse's hair on the ceilings, some of the first uses of printed wall decoration, hear about the plagues, a story about a little girl's ghost, Annie, the home of a guy who had the first indoor toilet, haha, the structure of the housing situation in Edinburgh in general, how people thought the close was haunted after 50% of the people on this one died from the plague, and more. The guide even threw in a few ...

I doubt you will have the good fortune to encounter Flagstaff Dave in a layby, but you have to stay in this town it is awesome. I would happily live here over every place we’ve been. Surrounded by pine forests, deer and elk leaping about all over the place, but an incredibly friendly and happening college town, and only an hour’s drive from the just brilliant Grand ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dalhousie Castle Bonnyrigg

    Made my 21st Birthday unforgettable!

    from

    From the second you see the castle coming up the drive way you are quite bewitched. Then parking up next to the ferrarris and porsches you make your way to the large wooden entrance door which creaks on cue.

    The reception staff are helpful efficient and friendly. The castle has fabulous decor it is every inch the 13th century castle ghosts and all, the setting is breathtaking, the restaurants and food divine, but be sure to make reservations early for the dungeon. The bedrooms are clean well presented and very comfortable. The chapel is perfect for a wedding and library great for drinks in the evening. The night porter will even give you a history/ ghost tour of the castle. This hotel can not be faulted, you must go!

    Fantastic Place !!

    from

    We stayed in William Wallace suite which was magnificient. Managed to get a tour of about 8 of the themed rooms, Mary Queen of Scots room was probably the best. The Library bar is a great place to have a few relaxing drinks in front of the log fire. The Dungeon restaurant had a great atmosphere and food to match. I'll be back. Two tips : if you are flying to Edinburgh, get the hotel to book the taxi rather than paying the airport taxi rates ; try and book through laterooms for a great deal.

    Don't miss out on the Falconry!

    from

    What a great place to stay - it was as beautiful as we had hoped, our themed room (India) was lovely and the staff was so friendly and down to earth.

    They also offer a falconry package here at 55 per person - this sounds like a lot, but is completely worth it for over 2 hours of personal attention. The lady who runs it (Julie) is lovely and knows so much about the birds. They are well looked after and much loved by the owners. I will never forget the owls and falcon flying onto our hands or the eagle sitting on my arm - you must be mad to go to Dalhousie and not take part in this experience!

    Absolutely fantastic!

    from

    We stayed in Dalhousie Castle in August of this year and it was superb!

    Marvelous wedding

    from

    Got married at Dalhousie last year, wife to be spent months searching internet for ideal castle and dalhousie didn't let us down.

    Everything from beginign to end was handled wonderfuly by staff- even to recomending a minister for ceremony- rev william brown.

    A wonderful day, the meal in the dungeon was amazing, the views spectacular and the co-ordinator for the day incredibly helpful.

    The honeymoon suite was very impressive and the other themed rooms used by our guests where also beutifuly turned out.

    Only complaint is you have to book a long time in advance as the castle is so popular!!

    Looking forward to many return visits in the future, thank you dalhousie for making our special day so amazing

    Too expensive for the type of room

    from

    We stayed in a castle room and, while nice, was just hotel room that we could have gotten in Edinburgh for much cheaper. The themed rooms may have been more castle like, but we didn't see them.

    Don't stay in the Lodge

    from

    I was really looking forward to staying at Dalhousie Castle, but the only rooms available were in the lodge, which is described as being behind the castle building. It is more than behind-it is a 5 minute walk away. The lodge has 5 rooms, however, the parking lot only accomodates 2 cars. The rooms are on the upper 2 floors of the lodge and there are no elevators or porter service, so you have to carry your bags up and down the steps. The room we were in was also quite small.

    The restaurant people were very nice, but the front desk people were pretty unhelpful. For the cost of staying there in the lodge room, I felt my money could have been better spent elsewhere.

    Immagination runs wild

    from

    All the dreams a young girl ever had about castles, knights, and dungeons came true the night I spent at Dalhousie. My husband and I were on a very special trip to celebrate our 30th anniversary when we spent one night in the William Wallace Room.

    Although I am not a "young" girl, my night and dinner in this wonderful establishment made me feel that way. I hope to return one day.

    Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for helping to make a lifelong dream come true.

    Highly Recommended!

    from

    I had my wedding at Dalhousie in May of 2001. It was absolutely beautiful and the staff were wonderful - especially our wedding coordinator Laura and the banquet captain.

    HOWEVER, I would counsel AGAINST reserving the room which has the castle well in it (de Ramseia Suite) - they promote this as one of the best rooms, but I found it to be very very musty and not pleasant. THe other themed rooms, though, were fabulous - especially the suite that is in the round tower (Dalhousie Room) and the Robert the Bruce Suite.

    GO TODAY!! I will return as often as I can.

    Hospitality was exceptional, rooms werebeautiful

    from

    I have nothing bad at all to say about your castle. I

    stayed there last year for four days and nights and everything was perfect.

    If I had only chosen the right partner to come along, would have made it better, but thats another story. I would love to come back again some day and definitely plan to, just not into flying right now as you can imagine.

    But only again, BEAUTIFUL, thanks you a great stay there
