Castle of Park – Banff, Aberdeenshire

Private Houses

This is the most authentic stay in a Scottish castle you’ll find (unless of course you have the funds to buy your own). Still the main family home of the Campbell Wilson clan, it’s a true home from home; except that it’s filled with gallery-worthy art and antiques (the previous laird was an art dealer). If any of the family is in, they are more than happy to take guests through the castle’s history. Choose from exceptionally self-contained suites, to cosy rooms filled with all comforts. The current laird, Becky Campbell Wilson, is a keen open-water swimmer, hence the ‘endless’ pool which uses dual propulsion for endurance training – it really livens up laps before breakfast. In winter, settle in front of the fire with a local dram, come summer, spend your days wafting from croquet on the lawn, to the laburnum walk, rose garden and labyrinth. The ideal setting from which to explore Banffshire’s whisky distilleries, world-class fishing and stunning coastline.
