Crossbasket Castle, Glasgow
Sensitively renovated, Crossbasket is a stunning 17th-century castle transformed into one of Scotland’s most luxurious hotel and event venues. Steeped in history, Crossbasket Castle has many unique period features which have been restored to their original beauty using traditional craftsmen and materials. The Stewart Drawing Room is a perfect example of the quality of restoration featuring uniquely detailed cornices finished in gold leaf to ensure these features convey the magnificent grandeur typical of this era.
The perfect luxury retreat for guests looking for peace and tranquillity, Crossbasket features nine breath-taking en-suite bedrooms each decorated in a classical style and named in honour of a historical custodian of this magnificent castle. Each bedroom is individually crafted and strikes the perfect balance between traditional character and modern finishing.
Authentically charming, Crossbasket’s four-story bridal tower dates to the 16th century as part of the preceding Mains Castle. The fairy-tale turret room, built on a hill overlooking the Calder river, is served by a sweeping spiral stone staircase. A true one-off, it is the ultimate bridal suite. Also available as self-catering accommodation is Gate Lodge, a traditional two bedroomed house, located at the entrance to the Crossbasket Estate on Stoneymeadow Road. Approximately a three-minute walk from the Castle, it is perfect for families, or for those looking for a five-star experience with the amenities of home.
Dine in opulent surroundings at the latest contemporary fine-dining restaurant from the Roux culinary dynasty. Overseen by the legendary French chef Albert Roux and son Michel Roux Jr, dishes showcase fare from Scotland’s renowned natural larder with an added touch of creative flair from the iconic Roux team.
The castle grounds include a large stretch of woodland, extensive nature walks and a beautiful stretch of river featuring majestic waterfalls. The convenient location means there is plenty to do and see locally, including golfing, fishing and hiking.
