Activities to Try

Golfing with a View

Golfing with a View

Dalmunzie Estate boasts its very own 9-hole golf course. The course's elevated position within the beautiful countryside means this is a game with a view. Players should keep a sharp eye out for hares, red deer, and the occasional sheep known to roam the course, adding an extra challenge to the game.

The golfing season runs from mid-April to mid-October, although this also depends on the weather. Wellies are recommended, just in case!

The course has a par 30, making it ideal for novice players while offering a more challenging game for those with a little more experience. However, it's important to note that there are no buggies available on the course, and the terrain can be challenging in some places, so the estate stresses that a certain level of fitness and mobility is required.

Dalmunzie is also the ideal base for exploring some of Scotland's other fantastic golf courses. Blairgowrie's championship Rosemount Golf course is a short trip away, as are Braemar, Carnoustie, Alyth and St Andrews.


A Highland Dining Treat

If you're looking for a memorable dining experience during your trip, then the Castle Hotel restaurant is ready to welcome cottage guests for a homegrown treat. The restaurant promises visitors an excellent tasting experience with locally sourced food.

The authentic Scottish menu changes alongside the seasons, ensuring the freshest ingredients are used to create delicious dishes with a modern flare. The menu has something to suit all tastes, from classic dishes like roasted lamb rump, to something a little different like roasted beetroot and vanilla risotto.

No meal in the Highlands would be complete without a Scottish tipple to round it off. For whisky enthusiasts, there is a wide array of single malts sourced from across Scotland. The estate's fully trained staff can help you select your perfect aperitif. However, if gin is more to your taste, the restaurant and bar also carry a superb selection of Persie Gin Distillery-infused gins.

The Castle Hotel restaurant is ideal for that special occasion or a relaxing night out.

Activities in the Local Area

Just six miles from the estate is Glenshee, renowned as a hub for winter sports. It is a sportsperson's paradise. Glenshee's twenty-two lifts make light of the ascents, leaving you ready and primed to enjoy the slopes. Visitors can take the lift to the top in the summer to enjoy the spectacular views.

During the summer months, the Highlands host many Highland games events where visitors can look forward to seeing traditional Highland dancing competitions and heavy sports competitions, including popular events like caber tossing and tug of war. The games promise an action-packed experience suitable for the whole family.

The Braemar Gathering is one of the best-known Highland games in September, just sixteen miles from the estate. The gathering has been attended by the late Queen and other Royal Family members for many years while they are on holiday at Balmoral. Is there a better seal of approval than that of the attendance of the Royal Family?
