Comlongon Castle is a restored 15th Century Medieval Scottish Castle, regarded as the most important and complete example surviving in Scotland today. Set in over 120 acres of manicured gardens, sweeping lawns, carp pond, lakes and woodlands, Comlongon is one of the very few hotel venues that remain in private ownership. With its attached Edwardian hotel offereing 14 individually themed suites, boasting a range of en-suite 4-poster bedrooms providing a stunning blend of history and modern luxury, and detached private Honeymoon Lodge, Comlongon is a truly unique venue.
