'The Ballroom Apartment' has 2 bedrooms which sleep 4(+baby). It is spacious and beautifully presented - approx. 200 sqm and is set on 2 floors of the exquisitely refurbished Dollarbeg Castle. Originally built in the 19th century for a Victorian railway tycoon, it now combines traditional Scottish baronial architecture with modern comfort and style.
The living area, formerly the castle ballroom, has a high ceiling and large windows, so is spacious and full of natural light. It is beautifully furnished to a high standard with wooden floors and large leather sofas. Indoor entertainment includes a 50' plasma tv and hi-fi with surround sound. Free Wi-Fi is available and also broadband internet if you have your laptop with you.

About: I am a Harley Street dental surgeon who enjoys living and working in London but likes to holiday in beautiful Scotland. The setting is lovely and a wonderful place to relax.
Why Gleneagles: It is ideally situated in between the major cities of Scotland and yet it is hidden away on the outskirts of Dollar village.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The apartment is a calm and tranquil place to relax, set in 5 acres of communal gardens. There are lovely views of the Ochil Hills from both the living area and the master bedroom. I find it a wonderful place to return to after a day's sightseeing or shopping in Edinburgh or Glasgow.
