My place is close to Half way between Perth and Dundee, only one hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow.. You’ll love my place because of The outdoors space, Fingask is a magical place to visit!. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).

The space
Sycamore is a two storey cottage, in the corner of the courtyard. It has a back door leading onto the shared lawn with garden furniture provided in the spring and summer, the front door leads onto the courtyard. On the ground floor there is a sitting/dining room with an open firer (logs provided) and a kitchen with a fridge/freezer, cooker and hob, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster. Upstairs are a double room and a twin room with a hand basin. The bathroom contains a bath, shower cubical and toilet. The heating in this cottage is electric, which is included in the cost.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to stroll around the grounds which were first laid out in the 17th Century by the ancestors of the present owner. Please respect the families privacy and avoid the area immediately around the Castle.

We have at Fingask a games room with a full sized snooker table, table tennis and table football. The pool is heated and open from Easter till October or when it becomes too cold, it is outdoors! Next to the pool is the tennis court, raquets are available for loan from the office.

Other things to note
If we have a wedding during your stay, we would ask that you please avoid the front of the Castle and the Pavilion.

Welcome to Fingask Castle! The estate sits on the hillside near the village of Rait. A super location for walks and wildlife we have a swimming pool and games room for guest use. A secluded spot but just a short drive from Perth and Dundee we are in a great spot to explore the area or to simply relax and switch off from the wider world. We have seven self catering cottages and nine Potting Sheds which are twin bed rooms with en-suite facilities. All have wi-fi so how connected you stay is entirely up to you! Arlene looks after the bookings Monday to Friday. Andrew looks after bookings over the weekends and evenings. Andrew and Helen own Fingask and live on site year round. Let us know if you have any queries and we hope to see you soon!
