Crossbasket Castle - LUXURY HOTEL NEAR GLASGOW
Stately style meets boutique sensibility at this Scottish castle escape
There’s a story behind every staircase and soaring turret of Crossbasket Castle. You could be hanging your clothes in the Duke of Cambridge’s wardrobe one minute. Then gazing at the grounds that once belonged to Charles Macintosh. From its 15th-century Robert the Bruce roots to coveted contemporary status, weekend breaks to wedding celebrations, Crossbasket Castle is a landmark Scottish retreat.
Roll up the drive in a 4x4 – or arrive in style by helicopter – to the entrance of this clotted cream-coloured castle. Grand, canopied beds and light-filled, antique-dotted suites await. Before you make it upstairs, settle into the wood-panelled library or a window seat. As you admire the views, indulge in a delicious afternoon tea or sample some of the smooth whisky selection. Just leave room for dinner, courtesy of the Roux family.
Outside, the River Calder runs through the estate. Pick up a hotel fishing rod and see if you can catch Brown Trout, or venture further afield for salmon. High Blantyre puts historical relics, iconic golf courses and some of Scotland’s most dramatic scenery at your feet. There’s plenty near Crossbasket Castle for families, too. If you’ve a cultural getaway in mind, Glasgow city is just 15 minutes away. A hub for museums, architecture and boutiques – not to mention the SSE Hydro arena – it buzzes around the clock.
