Kilmartin Castle

Sleeps up to 10

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 January 2019, Kilmartin Castle was completely renovated, taking a year to complete. 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.

There are 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.

In 2021 the castle grounds were completely re-landscaped and include pergola and outdoor dining table to the front of the castle. A raised lawn has beautiful views overlooking Kilmartin Glen. There is also an orchard, sunken fire-pit, outdoor sitting area with Italian sofas and wood burning stove. There is an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, bbq and Kamado Joe. The kitchen is fully equipped and has hot running water. The al fresco dining area seats ten-sixteen. A large wild swimming pond is perfect for a cold water dip when the sun is shining. Guests are also welcome to help themselves to herbs, fruit and vegetables which are grown organically in the castle grounds.

Kilmartin Castle is the perfect place for small weddings and elopements.
