forter castle exterior scotland

Originally built in 1560, then attacked and felled 90 years later, this is a true historic monument. Lovingly restored by father-daughter duo Robert and Katharine Pooley in 1988, they have designed Forter to balance modern comforts with the unique history. The rooms are naturally spacious while still retaining the cosines of the roaring fires. With six bedrooms, including an attic ideal for children and set over five floors it would be the quintessential Perthshire stay for families or a group of friends. With food either locally supplied or the option of a private chef catering in the property, you can ensure organic, regional fayre. A 1.5-hour drive from Edinburgh, the stunning highland location in a secluded valley, provides the ideal backdrop for daily explorations making the most of the landscape and heritage of the region.
