On the little island of Shapinsay in Orkney sits the most dignified castle. From the De Gournay silk wallpaper to roll-top baths, formal gardens, decadent decor and indescribable views of vast vistas, Balfour Castle hotel is everything the imagination could ever conjure up, and then some. Oh, and the turret on top may just be the fact that guests arrive in style on a private charter boat. This venue really is exclusive with its unrivaled views, stunning surrounding wilderness and the way in which the most divine light pours through the giant windows casting delicate dancing shadows.
