A wonderful historic house within a private 2000 acre estate. Ideal for special celebrations, multi-generational family gatherings as well as corporate meetings, there are 10 bedrooms/bathrooms available for up to 20 guests. The one bedroom Private Apartment can also be booked separately if additional accommodation is needed. The price listed is for rental only and a bespoke fully inclusive service fee is supplementary.

Carnell is very much a family home and very comfortable.

The space
A wonderful family home furnished over many years by each generation. The house is warm year-round due to the efficiency of the biomass boiler serving the Big House. This also serves the hot-water system ensuring everyone gets a hot bath when needed. This is not one of those Scottish piles where you go to bed wearing your thermals! It's also cool in summer with its thick walls and huge windows.

Carnell is a fully staffed house. We have a choice of two excellent Chefs and friendly house ladies and grounds staff who look after you and your party. As a guide, the daily 24 hours inclusive service fee is from £145 plus VAT per adult per night based on a minimum of 16 guests and includes food and drinks as well as service. This is a bespoke service depending on numbers, children, diet, etc., so do get in touch if you need more information.

Your stay will feel like you're part of a traditional house party. You'll come down to the log-fired hall, fresh coffee and newspapers. Breakfast is usually served from 9am to 10am unless your party has plans for the day. During the summer months, guests enjoy playing tennis, fishing on the pond or taking a horse ride around the Estate. There are many top golf courses within a short drive. Glasgow and its galleries and shopping is about 30 minutes drive. Edinburgh is 75 minutes and Loch Lomond the same.

Within the house, you can enjoy relaxing in the spacious reception rooms which look out over well-tended gardens. There is chess, backgammon and bridge as well as other board games. The Billiards Room also houses an excellent whisky collection (this can be removed if not required).

We have our own area of the house and are here to help organise your stay and make sure you go home with fantastic memories.

During your stay

As you can imagine, running the house for larger parties does take some organising. Prior to arrival, we like to agree a plan with you so things like menus and wines as well as activities are all agreed. We can help with coordinating with 3rd parties for things like music, transfers, golf etc.
