The Castle is entered through the stone flagged hallway. Leading off to the left is the ornate high-ceilinged dining room together with butler's pantry and to the right is the luxurious, comfortable lounge with TV, DVD and freeview satellite. Off the lounge is the well-equipped library which guests are free to make use of.
Leading down from the central hallway is the spiral staircase which gives you access to the lower ground floor where you will find the large, bright and airyfarmhouse-style kitchen, very well equipped with range cooker, American-style fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also an attached family style breakfast room. The kitchen corridor then leads to the separate linen and utility room which houses a washing machine and tumble-dryer.
Again from the central staircase you can access the upper to floors. On the first floor you will find the first 3 bedrooms, two large double 4-poster bedrooms and off the green room there is a separate large single bedroom. Each 4-poster bedroom has an adjacent large and luxurious bathroom, one bathroom provides a deep Victorian roll-top bath and separate shower unit and the other houses a relaxing whirlpool bath.
On the second floor you will find the other 4 bedrooms which comprise 2 large double bedrooms, a large single bedroom and a smaller single bedroom which provides bunk-bed accommodation for 2, better suited to youngsters. There is a large family bathroom on this floor with both bath and shower facilities. Each double bedroom is equipped with both television and tea and coffee making facilities.
In all, the bedrooms provide sleeping accommodation for a maximum of 12 people, 4 double bedrooms, 2 single bedrooms and the bunk-bedroom. All linen, bedding and towels are provided.
The castle is centrally-heated throughout which provides a good background heat commensurate with the age and size of the Castle rooms.
Up to two really well-behaved dogs are welcome but guests must ensure that they take care of furniture and fittings and a small additional cleaning charge will be made.
Kilchrist is a family owned private home and as such is well-equipped with books, puzzles, games, toys etc which guests are very welcome to make use of. Pursuits such as croquet and other outdoor games can be enjoyed in the large walled garden, or just recline on a deckchair with a glass of wine and enjoy the peace! If you are lucky you may even see our family of wild deer which live around the Castle.
