Our kids were blown away! A really authentic castle: old, medieval ambience and beautiful but with modern rooms and fantastic hospitality. Me and Mrs Hay were great hosts. We would definitely recommend this for a once-in-a-lifetime castle stay!

This is the castle you imagined. Old, authentic, and quite medieval - but still has all the stuff we expect in 2013, like hot water and comfortable rooms. Mr and Mrs Hay were fantastic hosts. Our kids were absolutely blown away by the whole experience. It's not cheap but we loved it so it was a once in a lifetime... More

Fantastic, authentic "Scottish Castle" experience..... An overnight or a few days at Duns Castle is a simply wonderful experience. I stayed a night there a few days ago.....the exterior "looks" exactly how a castle SHOULD look - that's because that's exactly what it is - a castle with origins back to the 1100s that has been lived in by the...

We hired a cottage on the estate for my friend's 30th birthday, and what a great location. You're out of the way in beautiful countryside, and can have a long walk around the estate, and the lovely lake,so you feel like you're miles away when you're actually only a pleasant 15 minute walk from the great pubs, shops and restaurants...

A stay at Duns Castle was the highlight of our visit to Scotland. Aline and Aleck Hay welcomed our large group into their home and castle, parts of which date back to the era of King Robert the Bruce. The three generations of Hays currently residing there are surrounded by centuries of family and Scottish history, including many amazing paintings... More

We stayed here for three days in July 2013 as a family - in two rooms in the main castle as part of a Clan Hay reunion event worldwide. The view is amazing all the way around...the castle is beautifully maintained and the staff are excellent, gracious, and caring. The owners/operators Aleck and Alene are amazing - wonderful, gracious people... More

Friend of a friend booked this accomodation for 5 adults for a long weekend getaway this April. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment in the carriage mews. It was cold!! The heating came on for only a few hours of the day and went off at 10pm. We shivered in the hallways and in our bedrooms. We were told... More

My family stayed in Cedar cottage on the Duns estate when my brother-in-law was married at the Castle recently. We had a wonderful time, the wedding was the perfect combination of 'fairytale' beauty and totally down to earth, relaxed, and enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the chef's kindness in catering for my special dietary needs (coeliac, no dairy). The estate is... More

Our son was married at duns Castle. We stayed there for two nights and had the entire castle to ourselves (except of the owner and staff). The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The wedding was held in front of the castle which provided a beautiful backdrop except for the cars that were parked out front. Aleck (owner) was very... More

We attended a family wedding here last year. Admittedly the castle is set in wonderful surroundings with lovely scenery but we found the accommodation somewhat shabby. Our room didn't have an adjoining en-suite - down the corridor and round the corner to the bathroom and we felt that the price was somewhat steep for this arrangement. A positive is that... More
