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.
Forter castle was built in 1560 and destroyed in 1640. It was lovingly restored in the late 1980’s.
The castle is located in the beautiful Scottish Highlands about 1.5hr drive from Edinburgh airport and on route to the Cairngorm national park.
The space has been beautifully restored and decorated by internationally acclaimed owner and designer Katharine Pooley. The internal areas have been designed to maximise comfort whilst retaining a traditional Scottish flair in keeping with a home originally built in 1560.
