Douneside House extends a warm welcome to serving and retired military guests, with exclusive discounted rates which are available throughout the year.

Following the tragic deaths of her sons, Lady MacRobert wished for Douneside House to be used as a holiday home for members of the British Armed Services. To continue this valued tradition, special discounted rates are available for serving or retired members of the armed forces throughout the year.

The discounted military rates are applicable to all ranks of the Armed Forces (serving and retired, regular and reserve (inc Cadet Force staff) and includes those from NATO and Commonwealth countries), widow or widower and their accompanying, immediate families (parent, child or siblings). Immediate families (parent, children or siblings) of currently serving members of the Armed Forces, who are away on duty, are also eligible for our discounted rates without the serving member, as long as they are 'sponsored' by that member. These rates are not available through our online reservation system. to make a military reservation please email
