Myres Castle awarded five stars

Myres Castle in Fife has been awarded five stars by Visit Scotland in its recently launched category Exclusive Use Venue, featuring properties that open exclusively for one customer or party with a minimum stay of one day. The property scored 42 out of a possible 42 on the Exclusive Use designator and Visit Scotland will subsequently use Myres as a benchmark for grading all exclusive venues. A Visit Scotland spokesperson said: “Myres Castle offers the highest standards in service and quality, exceeding guests’ expectations with its dedicated staff and outstanding cuisine.” Visit Scotland has introduced the Exclusive Use designator so that exclusive use venues are recognised and graded according to quality and service standards. The sector includes castles and historic properties and will be restricted to four- and five-star properties only. All exclusive use venues listed offer a unique experience, with guests often staying in a fully staffed heritage property. Dating back to the 16th century, Myres Castle has a maximum capacity of 18 and offers individually styled accommodation and a wide choice of outdoor activities from golf to fishing, falconry and shooting.
