This is a special listing for the West Wing of Dunskey Castle. It has 7 bedrooms, all of ensuite showers and baths. Your booking ensures exclusive use of the West Wing, where you won't share any space anyone else. Additionally, there are: The Great Hall, The Victorian Drawing Room, The Officers' Corners (second living room), The Georgian Porch, The United Turkey Red Bar, The Dutch Kitchen, a high-tech full kitchen. Please read full description below.

Established by a dapper industry magnate and Member of Parliament Charles Lindsay Orr Ewing, Dunskey Castle infuses intelligent luxury and historical romance into every second of your spectacular stay. The Castle, completed at the turn of the century, showcases unrivaled technology of its heyday and historical architecture of enormous proportions. Throughout the Castle, physical features will bring alive the patriarch's globetrotting influences and the rich history of Scottish merchants at the cusp of the Industrial Revolution. From the iconic Delft tiles that grace the mantelpiece in many bedrooms and social areas, to the outrageously intricate Baronial plaster ceiling, which is deemed culturally significant by the Scottish government. Every moment at Dunskey promises true immersion into history, authenticity, and a perfectly bespoke luxury that befits the Castle's historical grandeur.

The Baronial Porch pays homage to the Castle's medieval roots by incorporating original stoneworks from the 11th Dunskey Castle ruin that still stands dramatically cliffside a few miles down the coast. Its pared-back austerity sharply juxtaposes the entrance foyer, where rich oak panels immediately cocoon guests in warmth and resplendence. Ornate frames of art works original to Castle are displayed throughout the reception rooms, including an ever-growing collection of ceramics, a tribute to Charles Orr Ewing's travels throughout South and East Asia. Inside the Great Hall, the Jacobean fireplace with its impressive curved countenance, bearing the ancient family crest, commands your attention and invites hours of lazing in front of its cracking embers. Offering views of rolling meadows, through the woodlands and as far as the eyes can see to the coast, the Great Hall embodies a quiet magnificence that can sheathe and soothe outward distractions.

In contrast to the stateliness of the Great Hall, the Victorian Drawing Room recalls silk gloves and calligraphied letters. Sink into sumptuous wool and velvet upholstered armchairs, most of which have been painstakingly restored. Stretch out on our buttery leather four-seat Chesterfield and be seduced by the handcrafted Grecian and Scottish vines and foliage that adorn the ceiling. Or play the liveliest round of Chinese Whisper on our leather-and-grommet Windsor conversational settee. There are few places better for escaping into a book than next to the roaring fireplace, beneath the spectacular floor-to-ceiling mantelpiece painted in the softest of dove gray. Operatic callings may be on the cards with the presence of the 19th-century mahogany pearl-inlaid piano, or if karaoke is more your jam, consider treating it as a station for whisky tasting.

Speaking of strong tipples, ensconced yourselves at the United Turkey Red Bar, named after the company founded by the Orr Ewing brothers in 1898, to produce their famously passionate and royal red dye. Entirely bespoke to Dunskey Castle, the bar retains its character from the oak wood paneling salvaged from the attic! While perched on gold and velvet barstools, you'll be charmed by maritime artefacts that came from yatchs commissioned and built by Charles Orr Ewing, including gilded prints, ship's mirrors and the original brass crew's bell from his ship The Anson. The unusual exposed-brick, multi-tier fireplace will transport you to all the ship's rip-roaring follies on the sea once upon a time.

If it gets too lively at the bar, retreat to the Officer's Corner, a stately homage to the Estate's history and records upon its formation. Here, you'll find an impressive stone-carved fireplace and a fascinating bookcase designed specifically for this quarter. Leather bound and gold embossed volumes of Estate records, crystal ink pots, and mementos from Charles Orr Ewing's globe-circling travels will certainly stir at your own wanderlusts. If that's not quite enough, wool upholstered sofa, throws of sheepskins and velvet armchairs will undoubtedly spur the most intimate parleys.

Head towards Dutch kitchen with our most treasured heirloom at your feet: the carpets, dyed of course with the Turkey Red. Commanding perhaps the best lights and views in the Castle with its double-story windows, the space is named after the blue-and-white Delft tiles that grace the wrought-iron fireplace. Full disclosure, these Dutch tiles with their delightful depictions of a coastal village are exceptionally dear to our porcelain-obsessed hearts. Here, you'll find an antique spinning wheel, rosebud fainting couch, lioness chairs and, improbably, our upstanding bear Wilson, who is at least 170 years old. That should be all you'll need to create your favourite fairy-tale reenactment.

On the first floor, the first bedroom you'll find is Ella Baker, named after an African American civil rights activist who worked alongside W.E.B Dubois. Handpainted murals and lacquered Chinoiserie panels adorn the indigo walls, showing off a most spectacular gilded ochre bed. The true wow-factor, however, comes from the other-worldly bathroom suite, with its original ceramic and brass bathtub large enough four full size adults, not that we would encourage that sort of frolicking. Morrocan lanterns are suspended above the bath, lending an exotic air to the suite, and contrast beautifully with the hand-glazed teal tiles. Too much to do to contemplate a leisurely soak? Step into our full-size shower, created with great sympathies to preserve all heritage features of the bathroom.

Rainbow suite sits across the hall, offering heartstopping views through the fields and to the ocean. Its namesake is the Rainbow Royal Yatch, a multi-award-winning boat that competed in the most exciting international competitions of its days. Keeping true to its seafaring motifs, you'll find lovely coral decor and gold conch lamps throughout the room. We've searched high and low for the mahogany four-poster bed in the suite, and settled on this intricate canopied piece from the early 18th century. Modern comforts won't be compromised though, as a full shower ensuite and a built-in bathtub will ensure you are up to date in luxurious convenience.

The third bedroom, Orion, often elicit gasps from our guests, particularly those who have always treasured the idea of a gold soaking tub in front of a fireplace. Drawing from the circles in "Orion", also named after one of Charles' yachts, a steel and French linen ring canopy bed sits with spherical gilded lamps flanking its side. Get ready for an evening of fine dining in front of the antique dressing table, featuring, you guess it, a circular gold mirror. One of the best parts of the bedroom, of course, is the velvet emerald chaise, encouraging maximum lazing about.

Garden bedroom features a unique view of the vast back lawn, glimpses of the Castle's east wing Baronial architecture, and the woodlands. Here you'll find one of the Castle's original brass beds, restored by us, and outfitted with supremely comfortable mattress, downy duvets, and exquisite linens. A tufted vintage velvet green loveseat ensures ample space for snuggles and reading in this retreat. Featuring the only double-door bathroom in the Castle, you'll be greeted with a built-in bathtub by the bay window, and large shower as always.

We have finally arrived at the Morroch, the grandest and most awe-inspiring room of all. This expansive suite is guaranteed to take your breath away with its infusive lights streaming from every corner. A brass and velvet four-poster superking bed awaits you. A reclaimed carved pine Colonial sofa in French linen and fringe dove velvet chairs creates a romantic atmosphere. To enhance the grandeur, a statement cream Victorian mirror armoire with full length mirror makes sure you look resplendent from every angle. Not to be outshined, the opposite wall features a splendid two-tier Chateau dressing table, a piece so gorgeous designed we have little difficulty lingering by its side. And of course, one of the most phenomenal bathrooms in the Castle resides here. Truth be told, the bathroom itself is slightly larger than our first studio apartment in Manhattan! We won't tell you everything about it, for a little intrigue goes a long way, and you'll best experience the wow-factor first hand when you arrive.

Prístup pre hostí

Reading is my life, especially if the books are by women of colour. I am also a proud and outspoken feminist who is passionate about racial justice, rural development, and voting rights. Smashing the patriarchy is our family's most favoritest activity :-) . Our family has been working on the Dunskey Project for the last few years, and we believe in transformative, compassionate, and value-driven hospitality. My children, Poi and Beebop, love pho and Vietnamese ginger chicken more than life itself. They're also partial to whacking nettles and swinging under the chestnut tree in the back of the Castle. We raise our children and ourselves with service as the core determinant of our lives. Also we listen to lots of podcasts and go for many aimless walks all around this remote corner of Scotland. The mushrooms are amazing teachers too!
