If you are looking for a Scottish castle to rent at any time of year, or, a holiday cottage in Scotland, Wester Brewlands provides luxury holiday accommodation for up to 14 people.
It has always been a family home but it has been totally refurbished to a very high standard while retaining all the charm of the old house. Many of the furnishing fabrics are from the famous English decorating company of Colefax & Fowler.
Full central heating, open fires in the drawing room and library (the housekeeper will lay the fires for you), comfortable sofas, electric blankets and masses of hot water will keep you cosy in the winter months. We keep sledges for children and the ski slopes of Glenshee, the largest ski resort in Scotland, are only 35 minutes by car. We can arrange ski rental and guides.
This large holiday house in Scotland has 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, and a cot, high chair, buggy, backpack and change mat for a baby are available if required. Wester Brewlands has its own drive off a very quiet country lane and has parking for 6 cars. Wester Brewlands is fully equipped with all modern appliances.
Following the best traditions of Scottish castles, antlers hang in the entrance hall. The spacious drawing room seats 14 people, with log fire, deep sofas and antique furniture. You can work at the desk in this sunny room or listen to music and in winter a large Christmas tree stands in the corner. The furnishings in here are classic Colefax & Fowler with antique rugs and family photographs.
The library is clad in one of the family's tartans with a log fire, a TV and video and bookshelves filled with Scottish interest books, guidebooks, novels, board games and magazines. We have a video library which includes lots of children's videos. A folder kept in the library offers many suggestions of things to do and places to see. Our housekeeper can help to arrange activities and golf tee times etc.
The dining room is traditional in style with antique furniture. The large kitchen and separate large utility room have a microwave, range cooker with gas and electricity, a separate electric cooker, dishwasher, 2 washing machines & tumble dryer, 2 fridges, freezer, coffee maker, ice-cream maker, food processor, 2 sinks etc.
On the first floor of this large holiday home there are 2 master bedrooms with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. This is especially appreciated when 2 families take Wester Brewlands as there is no need to fight about who gets the main bedroom! There are also 2 twin rooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, a double room and a single and another bathroom. On the second floor are 2 twin bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom.
All the bathrooms have fluffy towels and they also all have over bath showers. Each bedroom has a different atmosphere, eg one has a canopied bed and a series of original watercolours of the Estate, while another features prints of Scottish castles. All the duvets have the highest rating to ensure that you are snug at night and lighting is designed to allow you to read comfortably in bed. Most of the bedroom curtains are by famous London decorating houses and the furniture is antique. All the beds in the holiday house are new and extra long to ensure maximum comfort. This really is one of the best large holiday houses in Scotland.
