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.
