Luxury Country House Hotel
Douneside House is a beautiful country house hotel which is full of character and history and, following a major renovation which will be complete in June 2016, offers a truly luxurious hotel stay within the grounds of the MacRobert Estate in Aberdeenshire and the Scottish Highlands.
The main hotel boasts 14 beautiful and unique rooms which have been re-designed to offer everything you would need for an unforgettable stay. Each room has maintained elements of its original character through individual pieces of antique furniture and artwork. The renovation has been a long process, which has included re-designing each room to ensure the fabrics, fittings and colours selected creates a luxury finish which is true to the original style of Douneside.
Set within the immediate grounds of Douneside House is the Casa Memoria building which was originally built by the MacRobert family as a museum for their artefacts gathered from their extensive overseas travels. Nowadays, the unusual architecture of this fascinating building allows for four architect designed, contemporary holiday apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms each with an individual, luxury finish.
Also within the grounds of Douneside House are Gatehouse, Pine, Alpha and Morven. These holiday cottages, each one individual in style and size, have all been re-designed and styled to the highest standards. Each holiday cottage has its own beautifully tended garden and patio for al fresco summer dining. In winter, you can enjoy the wonderful wintery scenes the local landscape has to offer from a cosy sitting room, warmed by a traditional wood burning stove.
Douneside House, Casa Memoria and the Douneside cottages are complemented by a fully renovated Health Club, situated within the grounds. After a long day hiking on the MacRobert Estate and surrounding hills, fishing in the nearby river, or golfing at the local course, you may choose to unwind with a yoga class or enjoy time in the swimming pool, steam room or sauna. Of course, you may prefer to spend the day relaxing in the Douneside library, browsing our extensive range of classical books next to an open fire and sipping a wee dram…. our staff are here to ensure your holiday in the Scottish Highlands is just as you imagine.
