Your mind will race as you start to imagine the sights these medieval castle walls have seen over time.
Kilmartin Castle was originally built in 1550 for John Carswell, then Rector of Kilmartin Glen, and later Bishop of The Isles, held as a Campbell Clan stronghold outpost after this. It stood abandoned for nearly 200 years, Now it’s a cozy retreat from the modern world ideal for romantic getaways, families, and friends to relax and experience the history of the surrounding landscape.
From Jan-June 2019 Kilmartin Castle was completely renovated. You can now enjoy a rustic 16th Century castle with some modern touches. Complete with brand new heating throughout, including underfloor. There is also a number of wood burners throughout the castle.
Kilmartin Castle has five individually designed en-suite rooms, a medieval dining room, a large grand hall hangout space and intimate whisky snug, all with the feel and comfort of a world-class boutique hotel, but without the formality.
The furnishings are a selection of vintage and modern pieces lovingly collected over time. All linen in the 5 bedrooms is 400 thread count Egyptian cotton, with duck down bedding.
Castle breakfasts are a big table social affair with an ever-changing menu that always includes locally sourced ingredients like farm-fresh free-range eggs, locally smoked salmon, local bacon, and sausages. Often, we’ll throw in daily specials like shakshuka or our homemade spicy baked beans and always have delicious vegetarian and vegan options too.
Now and again Kilmartin Castle host pop-up chefs and will be sure to let you know in advance if an evening of local gastronomy is lined up during your stay.
