East Wing can accommodate up to six people comfortably. There are two bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room and a large panelled drawing room. There is also a barbecue area and 11 acres of grounds. The owners also host weddings in the East Wing! The East Wing spans two floors of the castle and has been sealed off from the rest of the property. It has a side entrance which leads into a fully functional and contained living space. On the ground floor is the recently refurbished Edwardian-style kitchen, in addition to the medieval styled bedroom complete with an abundance of candles and furs and an ambience of living in the middle ages. This room also has en-suite facilities. Upstairs, the very large but comfortable living area, the panelled drawing room, has an open fire and is also allocated for grand dining with a wall filled with landscape art. The first floor landing has a snug in which a small library is ensconced. A large bathroom decorated in an art-deco style leads off from the landing, as do both bedrooms. Each spacious bedroom has been finished to a high standard and styled to a particular period in the castle’s history. Both bedrooms contain a kingsize bed, one of which is a four poster. They all offer excellent views over the gardens.

There is ample parking on the very wide driveway. In the unlikely event this is ever filled, cars can be parked in a clearing by the gate or on the grass to the left of the track as you approach the castle. Electric cars can be charged from an outdoor socket located on the castle’s exterior. The estate is 11 acres in size and is mostly wooded.

The sleepy village of Auchleven is about 5 minutes walk away down the driveway. There is a pub in the village. For shopping, guests will need to travel to Insch (2 miles) or Inverurie (15 miles). To the rear of the estate lies Bennachie, a small mountain ideal for hiking. No roads need be crossed to reach the summit from the castle. Cyclists will find the surrounding countryside to be exemplary for their purposes.

Weddings for up to 30 people can be hosted at Lickleyhead Castle. It specialises in destination weddings, elopements and vow renewals, though any wedding type will be accommodated. Guests at Lickleyhead Castle can play complimentary golf at Insch Golf Club and up to six people at a time can play. If there are over six guests wanting to play, they will need to pay £15 per round. This is unlimited, meaning you could play golf every day during your stay at no extra cost. For guests there is also 50% off a round at clubs affiliated with Insch in Aberdeenshire.
