Set within the grounds of the MacRobert Estate in Aberdeenshire, the main House features 14 beautiful guest rooms. The current refurbishment includes a complete re-design of each room to create a classic-contemporary style, whilst retaining important elements of Douneside’s original character through the careful placement of individual pieces of antique furniture and precious artwork.
Adjacent to the main House is the Casa Memoria building, which was originally brought to life by the MacRobert family, as a museum for artefacts collected on their extensive overseas travels. The building’s unusual architecture has enabled its transformation into four contemporary, architect-designed guest apartments, ranging in size from one to three bedrooms.
Guests staying at Douneside House, Casa Memoria or the Douneside holiday cottages can take advantage of our fully refurbished Health Club on the grounds. After a rejuvenating day spent hiking in the surrounding hills, fishing in the nearby river, or golfing at the local course, there is no better way to unwind than with a relaxing yoga class or refreshing dip in the pool, followed by a visit to the steam room or sauna. You may of course prefer to spend a leisurely few hours in the Douneside library, browsing our extensive range of books next to a roaring open fire while sipping a wee dram…
Our breathtaking location, coupled with luxurious accommodation, outstanding facilities and a passionate, attentive team dedicated to indulging your every whim, will ensure that your stay with us here in the Scottish Highlands is a truly memorable one.
