Duntreath Castle is the ancestral home, in unbroken succession of the Edmonstone family, who were granted the lands by King Robert III in 1435 as a wedding gift for his grand-daughter.
The original 15th century keep remains relatively untouched but the 19th century residential wing has been modernised and decorated to the highest standards.
The famous garden stands in 20 acres of lawns, with herbaceous borders, ornamental lakes, waterfall and bog gardens set against the stunning backdrop of the Campsie Hills. The South-facing terrace looks down the valley to Ben Lomond, of which an even better view can be had from the Tower battlements.
Classically described as “a magical place”, Duntreath Castle, with its warm welcome and stunning gardens, provides the perfect setting for every event.
The current Sir Archibald inherited the castle at the age of twenty two and with great reluctance reduced the size of the house in order to protect the estate. With his wife, Lady Edmonstone, he has more recently altered and restored the gardens. Among other alterations they have added the lake and steps which you will see should you visit today and continue to work on the garden which is frequently open to the public.
