Torrisdale Castle
Torrisdale Castle & Estate is an ideal location to relax and absorb the glorious scenery, nature and wildlife of the Kintyre peninsula. You can explore the castle grounds with its many trails (keeping an eye out for deer and golden eagles); climb the nearby hills, including Beinn an Tuirc, Kintyre's highest peak, to enjoy some spectacular views; and visit the estate's sandy beach, Torrisdale Bay, to enjoy the views of Arran, seabirds and the seals basking on the rocks.

The castle was extended to the north and the south in 1903 and 1908 respectively by William Macalister Hall, born in the castle and son of Peter Hall, to form the present building. For many years thereafter the estate's economy was driven by agriculture, forestry and fishing, until the estate diversified into tourism.
