Welcome to historic Birkhill Castle

Located in the Kingdom of Fife, overlooking the Firth of Tay, Birkhill castle is the home of the Earls of Dundee, the Royal Standard Bearers of Scotland. 

The castle has 10 double bedrooms, 2 singles and a nursery bedroom for up to 6 children. Most bedrooms come with their own private bathroom and widespread views of the Fife-shire countryside and the river Tay estuary.

Birkhill is perfect for holidays, intimate weddings, corporate and special events.  


A beautifully renovated ancestral home in the heart of Scotland

Come rain or shine, there’s something truly magical about Birkhill castle and its surroundings.

Set within 1,000 acres of stunning farm and woodland. Secluded paths meander from the tennis court, walled garden, and outdoor heated swimming pool down to the private beach and barbeque on the shore of the river Tay.

With towering ancient trees, red squirrels, otters, seals and even the occasional giant sea-eagle soaring overhead, every walk and every day at Birkhill offer something new and different.

Close to a variety of historic locations, including the city of Dundee, St Andrews and its golf courses, Edinburgh, Stirling, and the Scottish Highlands, Birkhill is a wonderful centre from which to explore Scotland.

Birkhill is friendly, welcoming and warm with heated rooms throughout.

We spent a week at Birkhill castle and loved every minute. So private yet so close to everything – an easy drive to all the main attractions. Our family and friends loved it. The location, rooms and views were just perfect!
