One-Off Feature

Set within the atmospheric Queen Elizabeth Forest near Aberfoyle, Duchray Castle is a magnificent gothic property, and in its grounds you will find this converted Victorian gate house. What better setting for a memorable holiday?

General Info

Historic Duchray Castle (once linked with the infamous Rob Roy) is a place of huge character and elegance, and at its gateway you will find Duchray Lodge, a beautifully converted house offering cosy accommodation and access to a wonderful estate. Whether you want to snuggle up in front of a fire or get out and about for some classic outdoor pursuits, this is a glorious setting for a Scottish holiday.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

There’s plenty to do on the estate itself, or further afield you can play golf at the 18-hole course in Aberfoyle, go fishing at the Lake of Menteith fishery, bike along National Cycle Route 7 and go horse riding.  Red squirrel, deer and a huge variety of birds are frequently seen on the Castle estate and our location in the heart of the forest means that miles of forest track are just outside our gates for walkers, cyclists and horse riders to enjoy.  The tourist attractions of the Loch Lomond and Stirlingshire areas are easily accessible and the lack of light pollution allows superb opportunities for star gazing on clear nights.
