“For full immersion into Scotland of yore, stay at the moody 16th Century Kilmartin Castle”
Kilmartin Castle can be yours to rule exclusively IF YOU ENJOY TO COOK YOURSELF!
A juxtaposition of old and new, rustic and elegant, Kilmartin Castle challenges expectations of what a Scottish castle getaway is.
Small enough for couples not to lose each other, and equally big enough to comfortably sleep 10 in 5 bedrooms, imagine your next family holiday, or getaway with friends, in your own private Scottish Castle.
Window seats provide the perfect place to snuggle up and read a book or escape to the whisky snug. Hidden behind one of our old oak beams in the grand hall is a projector screen so you can enjoy a movie together if you wish.
The castle kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you to flex your culinary skills. Cooking is made easy with two Bosch ovens and a large induction hob. A dishwasher is on hand, so no-one has to draw the short straw there, and there is a large fridge freezer so you can stock up for your stay.
We began growing our own fruit and vegetables in 2020 and our organic kitchen garden is now well established. We encourage you to help yourself whilst you are with us. We consider our veggie patch a living welcome hamper.
The castle kitchen is a sociable space with central island and seating booth where a fire would have rarely gone out in the 16th Century.
The castle’s candlelit dining room, also on the ground floor, has witnessed some memorable get-togethers over the last 500 years. Original stone walls and a barrel-vaulted ceiling make your dining experience like travelling back to in time to 1550.
If you do like the idea of spending a night in but handing the cooking over, then we can arrange a private chef to create a bespoke menu for you with local and seasonal produce. It’s a real treat!
You will, of course, have use of all five bedrooms with three UK king size beds and two UK doubles. None of the beds split, so do keep that in mind when adding up your numbers.
The castle gardens and grounds were landscaped in 2021 and now include an outdoor entertaining area with seating and wood burner, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, a Kamado Joe and BBQ as well as a glass house with dining table.
Grab a blanket and head to the sunken fire-pit to enjoy a dram and keep an eye out for shooting stars on a clear night.
For those of you who have embraced the health benefits of cold water we also have a wild swimming pond with fabulous views over Kilmartin Glen.
Hidden in a stone shed in the garden you will find WC’s, hand basins and wood burner.
FAMILIES, 4 LEGGED FRIENDS & FIREWORKS
Kilmartin Castle welcomes 2 well behaved dogs per group, when booking the castle exclusively. If you are bringing along 4-legged friends, we will have their beds ready too. We ask that you do not allow dogs to jump on the furniture or the beds.
We have a strict NO FIREWORKS policy at Kilmartin Castle as we are part of a small village community and surrounded by farmers.
We impose large fines for rule breakers in this regard. Nothing larger than a sparkler please!

Kilmartin Castle can be booked exclusively for a maximum of 10 people sleeping in 5 bedrooms with a 3-night minimum stay. Please keep in mind that beds do not split into singles. Occassionally, shorter exclusive stays may be available. For full information on prices please see our rates page.
