The story of SCHLOSS Roxburghe dates back to the 12th century. Its colourful history is filled with enchanting stories of love and war, however we begin our chapter in the 18th century, also known as the Age of Reason.
It was in 1745 that the most famous and romanticised of all the Jacobite uprisings began. The foundations of the rebellion rested on the love held between father and son as Charles Edward Stuart attempted to take the throne for his father. Affectionately known today as Bonnie Prince Charles, the rebel rising has since become part of Scottish legend and folklore.
During the rebellion, the prince spent a night in the home of Lady Chatto. The magnificent estate, formerly known as Sunlaws, located in the peaceful countryside of the Scottish Borders was for one night host to one of Europe’s most romantic historical figures.
The following day he set forth his advance into England, however before he left the prince planted a white rosebush in the grounds of the Estate. The white rose is said to exist even to this day.
Whether it was planted out of passion or love, we do not know, however these two values guide us, as we carefully preserve the rich and indigenous heritage of Sunlaws, known today as SCHLOSS Roxburghe, part of Destination by Hyatt.
It is our love for the Scottish countryside and our passion for hospitality that we exist as we are today. We embrace the unparalleled beauty, heritage and culture that surrounds us, and we are passionate about sharing it with you.
