Welcome to Kilmartin Castle

A place where the present and past reconcile. Love for art, architecture and history exist together in Kilmartin Castle. New memories are made within these old stone walls.

As we pull back our ancient battering ram and re-open the castle door to guests, there will be some changes. However, what remains is a warm welcome, a fabulous breakfast and as much countryside fresh air as you can pack into a day on the stunning West Coast of Scotland!

For bookings made from 15th June there will be no cancellation fee should government restrictions due to COVID-19 prevent you from staying with us.

Kilmartin Castle is an imaginatively restored 16th-century Scottish castle situated in wild and unspoiled Argyll on the breathtaking West coast of Scotland. Twenty-nine miles from Oban and six miles from the Crinan Canal, also known as Britain’s most beautiful shortcut.

Kilmartin Castle has stood at the top of Argyll’s ancient Kilmartin Glen, surrounded by standing stones, hill forts, and burial cairns for almost 500 years.

Stef & Simo have owned Kilmartin Castle for six years, completed an exciting restoration in July 2019, and now offer a bed and breakfast experience unlike any other you are likely to find in Scotland.

All of the bedrooms at Kilmartin Castle have private en-suites with rain showers. Some rooms have handcrafted copper baths and others their own wood-burning stove. An eclectic mix of antique furnishings, well-considered new, and old reclaimed materials, as well as original art pieces, create a very authentic, yet soft and welcoming castle interior.

There are so many ways to spend your time in Kilmartin and the surrounding areas including stunning walks, mountain bike trails, paddleboarding, kayaking, and fishing while you are in the heart of historic Scotland.

The very active Kilmartin Museum celebrates the many ancient treasures found in Kilmartin Glen with archaeological digs and events happening all year round. Having just received a £6m grant to expand, Kilmartin Museum will be under refurbishment from Winter 2020 for 2-years. The cafe and their fabulous cakes will temporarily move to a new building during the works.

Kilmartin Castle is the ideal stop for cyclists on ‘The Caledonian Way’ – National Route 78 of the National Cycle Network passes through the village.

As well as being Scotland’s hippest B’n’B. Kilmartin Castle can also be booked exclusively for small elopements, family holidays or special occasions.

Absolutely stunning, staying in this castle was one of the coolest experiences I have had. The area around Kilmartin is also amazing so much history to learn about. I highly recommend staying here it was perfect.
