Property & Estate Overview

A chance to stay either in an historic Scottish castle or one the lovely refurbished cottages set in the grounds with its own private beach on the Scottish West Coast. There is so much to explore and see.

On the picturesque east coast of Kintyre lies the stunning Torrisdale Castle private estate which has been run by the same family for over a hundred years.

'Servants Quarters' - Through its own private entrance on the ground floor of the castle, you will find the simply amazing ‘Servants’ Quarters’. This is a large 3 bedroom “apartment” (1,800 square feet to be precise!) which was completed in July 2013 and finished to an extremely high standard. The large lounge enjoys beautiful views across the gardens towards the sea and the Isle of Arran, but the question is, will you find the secret room?

If you are a keen walker then the grounds at Torrisdale will be sure to please and the Kintyre Way actually passes through the estate. Cycle hire is available and there are easy family bike trails round the estate to enjoy. 

Guests are also free to bring canoes, dinghies etc to use off the estate’s private beach. The area surrounding Torrisdale offers activities for everyone, including golf, horse-riding, water sports, two distilleries and also boat trips around Kintyre and to the famous Isle of Arran.

South Lodge - Sleeps 2 - 1 bedrooms

Torrisdale Castle
Torrisdale Castle & Estate offers the perfect location to enjoy wonderful scenery from your doorstep and great array of wildlife and nature at its best on the Kintyre Peninsula. Great walks up the nearby hills including Beinn an Tuirc, Kintyre's highest peak to view some of spectacular views. Seals are often sunning themselves on the rocks down by the beach where it is fun to head out in a canoe or take a trip out on a boat.

The family run Torrisdale Castle was extended in the early 1900's by the Macalister Hall family and continued to be by agriculture, forestry and fishing, until the estate diversified into tourism making it a wonderful venue for families, groups and couples looking for the ideal romantic break with a hot tub.
