  • "What a fabulous house, the Glamis team couldn’t have been more kind and welcoming."

    The house is very special and such a treat to stay in. Freshly made scones and Jane for our arrival was so special too, and free tours of Glamis Castle and grounds were also very appreciated. The Sykes team were excellent, going over and beyond in service and support. A really warm, personal service. So thank you to everyone.

Benefitting from en-suite bedrooms, pretty countryside views and traditional décor throughout, Glamis House welcomes up to thirteen guests, ideal for large families or groups of friends seeking a peaceful getaway in this superb corner of Scotland.

After parking up, enter your new dwelling to be impressed by the spacious living/dining room, connected by large doors which can be opened for an open-plan effect, complete with Smart TV and plenty of seating so you and your loved ones can gather around the open fire on cooler evenings, play games and plan your itinerary for the fun-filled days ahead.

Here there are also sash windows and doors letting in seas of natural light and allowing access to the garden.

In the well-equipped kitchen/diner get to grips with a fantastic array of appliances to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family, serving through the convenient serving hatch and settling down at the dining table to tuck in over a cold bottle of fizz; if the weather permits, why not venture outside to the charming rear garden to delight in an alfresco feast, taking advantage of the barbecue and soaking up your tranquil surroundings until the stars appear overhead.

Guests also have use of extensive grounds within an orchard-style setting, housing a summer house with conservatory style furniture.
