The lobby is the entrance to the castle and is small, but traditional.
The building dates from the 14th century. From the outside it has weathered stone walls surrounded by 12 acres of mature woodland. The earliest part of the castle - the west wing, was a simple stone tower or keep. It was later built on the z-plan characteristic of scottish fortified houses in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is a new annex which was originally the stable block and is now where the majority of the bedrooms and conference rooms are.
The hotel's 123 rooms include 6 junior suites and rooms for non-smokers. All are equipped with direct-dial telephones, satellite tv, private bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities and trouser press. There is 24-hour room service. 23 of the rooms are located in the castle itself and feature traditional scottish tartans and heraldic shields. Many have four poster beds. The hotel houses the majority of the rooms and these are modern and spacious in design and ideal for family occupation.
This hotel boasts one of the finest restaurants in Scotland, a dining room overlooking the Ochil Hills. Another restaurant lies beneath an impressive glass pyramid, offers less formal dining, but to the same remarkably high standard.
