Dairsie Castle is a unique self-catered property which sleeps 14. Located close to St. Andrews (15 minutes drive) and Edinburgh (1 hour drive), it is an ideal setting for a holiday to explore the heart of Scotland.


First sited in the 12th Century, Dairsie has been the location of secret Scottish parliaments, military sieges, and safe haven for escapee monarchs (James VI and I in 1583). The castle became a ruin in the 19th Century. In 1992 it was bought and rebuilt by the current owner who worked hard to restore the castle to its original medieval character, with all the comforts of a modern family home.

The Castle

‘The Dungeon' - On the ground floor there is a twin bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and ensuite bathroom.

'The Family Bedroom' - This huge master bedroom has 3 four-poster beds; 1 king-size, 2 large singles. The en-suite bathroom is complete with a stand-alone bath and window shutters, painted in the style of Hokusai.

‘The Spottiswoode (Upper Tower Room)’ - Named after one of the long-term residents of the castle, John Spottiswoode, the Archbishop of St. Andrews in the 1600s. This bedroom has a double bed and an ensuite bathroom.

‘The Learmonth (Lower Tower Room)’ - Named after the family that owned Dairsie for a 100 years, before they sold it to Archbishop Spottiswoode in 1616. This bedroom has a double bed and an ensuite bathroom.

‘The South Caphouse’ - A twin bedroom on the top floor at the end of the Gallery. It has a shared shower room with the North Caphouse bedroom, with a small compact shower unit.

‘The North Caphouse’ - This double bedroom is at the opposite end of the Gallery, at the top of the spiral staircase. It has a shared shower room with the South Caphouse Bedroom, with a small compact shower unit.

The Great Hall – As the hub of the castle, with a dining table which can seat 12, and is surrounded by beautiful artworks and sculptures.There are two large sofas and a foot stool around the fire place for post-dinner relaxation. A Minstrel’s Gallery which over-looks the Great Hall which can be reached from a staircase behind the room.

The Kitchen – The kitchen has all the usual culinary equipment and has a 2-hub Aga cooker. The room has a table and chairs and is large enough also to be used as a breakfast room. Behind the kitchen is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer, and adjacent to the kitchen is a washroom.

The Living Room – The living room is on the 2nd floor, situated next to the Family Bedroom. It is carpeted and has a TV and comfortable sofas. Next door to the living room is a small Toy Room which is filled with children’s books, toys and some board games for the evenings.

The Gallery – The Gallery is a spacious area on the top floor of the castle and is where a lot of the castle’s artwork and antiques are displayed. It is a very bright and large space with good views of the surrounding countryside.

Dairsie has 6 acres of grounds including a cop with a woodland walk down to the river Eden, a walled herb garden, an orchard and a large open grass area. There is an open garage, a watch tower and a large drive which can park a maximum of 15 cars. The castle's caretaker lives next door.

It is a truly unique property seeped in Scottish history, and one which we welcome you to experience and enjoy!

Dairsie castle was by far the best air Bnb we have stayed in, the castle was absolutely breath taking. The description and pictures are accurate and you will be in awe of the castle from the minute you arrive. The castle is really cosy and warm and has heating throughout especially being it is a large building. The scenery surrounding is so beautiful. Etsuko was an amazing host from start to finish and informative and not over bearing in any way. We would love to return to Dairsie castle sometime in the future as a family. Some amazing memories have been made in Dairsie ❤️

This was a wonderful place to stay. Our family made so many wonderful memories. The castle is huge and very roomy. It was furnished with all the touches of home. Etsuko even had a murder mystery game in the game room that my family enjoyed playing. The location was wonderful and not far from St. Andrews and the train station. I would highly recommend this place.

Perfection! What more can I say! Dairsie Castle was amazing from check-in to departure! A slice of heaven minutes from St. Andrews! There were 9 of us traveling through Scotland and this was by far and away the best accommodation of our vacation! Etusko was lovely and exceptionally amenable! The Castle was above and beyond what we were expecting! Exquisite grounds! Definitely WILL return!

We had the best weekend staying in this incredible castle!!! The grounds are spectacular and we had more then enough space for the seven of us. We were amazed at how clean it was for such a large place. We want to come back again someday!

Wonderfully charming castle experience! We had a blast. Etsuko was extremely helpful in helping us to plan our casual from afar - she recommended vendors and answered all of our questions right away.

Originally from the south of Japan I left to study abroad (UK & US) when I turned 18, and I have since lived in Australia and Hong Kong, before settling in Scotland where my children have grown up. We bought Dairsie as a ruin and restoring it has been tough but ultimately very…
