Dalnair Castle offers an exclusive range of new modern luxury apartments within acres of landscaped grounds.

Built in 1884 by Glasgow merchant Thomas Brown, the castle boasts a tower and Tudor-arched doorway.

It sits in established woodland within an attractive parkland setting with views over surrounding countryside.

Since its purchase by FM Group in 2016, the castle is being extensively refurbished to the highest standard through a £3.3 million investment programme, with only premium quality products and materials used throughout the development.

The castle was built by Glasgow merchant Thomas Brown around 1884 on the site of the former much smaller ‘Endrickbank House’ and survived a major fired that engulfed it in 1917.

Located outside the village of Croftamie near Drymen, historic Dalnair Castle offers an exclusive range of new modern luxury apartments within acres of landscaped grounds.

The  location offers the ideal living place for those in search of a quiet and peaceful setting surrounded by nature, and yet within easy reach of Glasgow and Stirling.

The castle forms the centrepiece of the prestigious Dalnair Estate, an idyllic rural landscape just on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

All apartments have en-suites to the master bedrooms and come with full double glazing, gas central heating, Brooklyn kitchens and visible appliances by Siemens. There is also access an electric charging point for vehicles.

The castle then passed into the hands of the Glasgow Western Hospital Board and it was used as a nurses’ home until 1972, when it became a training and conference centre for British Steel.

In addition to its unique setting and quality specifications, residents can enjoy access to private grounds featuring a tennis court and extensive lawns and walks.

Several popular countryside paths within neighbouring Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are also on hand and two golf courses can be found near the village, the 9-hole course at Strathendrick Golf Club and a beautiful parkland course at Buchanan Castle Golf Club.

Croftamie has a local pre-school nursery and it is located near the villages of Drymen, Killearn and Balfron, which offer primary and secondary education facilities as well as GP and dental practices – guaranteeing village life is well catered for.

Robert Croll Sales Manager for FM Group said:

“We are very delighted to have brought this majestic castle back to life, providing an ideal opportunity for those seeking to live in the country, especially given the increased demand for such properties in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated demand for country living and Dalnair is ideally located to address just that, but yet is within easy reach of Glasgow and Stirling.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for purchasers to live in luxury in a stunning location, at a truly affordable price.

“Dalnair Castle offers a unique setting on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. It is an excellent location for those searching rural quietness without giving up on accessibility to bigger cities.”

The residential development of Dalnair Estate also comprises eight more properties in the castle courtyard, now sold out, and a further ten plots for sale set within the existing landscape.
