Hotel information



Dating from the late 15th century and witness to numerous turbulent events in Scottish history, the Carberry Tower Mansion is an elegant edifice, blending medieval and Victorian flourishes.

Its 35-acre estate offers tree-lined driveways, sweeping lawns, landscaped ponds and meandering walkways, along with parkland populated with deer, pheasants and other wonderful wildlife.
