Visit the Scottish Highlands and Sleep Royally in Ackergill’s Castle

For more than 600 years, Ackergill Tower has stood majestically above the rugged shoreline at Sinclair Bay on the northernmost tip of Scotland – one of the most remote and romantic settings in the entire British Isles. Steeped in history, yet with 21st Century luxuries and five star, award-winning service, the castle and its 3,000-acre private estate with dramatic views of the North Sea, offers the ultimate retreat.

There are a range of activities available including a private loch and bothy for fishing, clay pigeon shooting on the estate, whisky tasting and numerous nearby distilleries and beach bonfires on a private beach. The property is home to largest treehouse in Europe, as well as 34 beautiful guest rooms.

Ackergill Tower may well be one of the remotest castles in Scotland but it’s also easily accessible and, at the end of your journey, you’ll be rewarded with five-star luxury, award-winning service and amazing architecture on the estate. From the stout granite walls of the castle, to the glass ceiling of their treehouse (the largest of its kind in Europe), all rooms luxuriously comfortable and splendidly welcoming. Hold your event in one of their superb venues such as the Great Hall or Sinclair Palace, the largest event space in the Highlands. Stay in one of 34 bedrooms or for a more romantic and private getaway, one of the six individual and luxury self-catering cottages. There are moments in life that demand a big gesture, and nowhere else rises to these occasions as gloriously as Ackergill Tower Estate.

Food lovers (and some of the most talented chefs) from all over the world flock to Scotland for its food, and the stunning restaurant at Ackergill Tower is no exception. Whether you’re joining for an intimate dinner or private function, you are guaranteed a dining experience to remember. You may even be piped to your table in the Great Hall by their own Highland pipe band. The hotel’s talented chefs source seasonal ingredients from local farmers, fishermen and markets so that you will experience spectacular starters, marvellous mains and decadent desserts, washed down by a local single malt.  You can even experience the most Scottish of traditions first hand – the addressing of the haggis.

Why not go all out and celebrate a special occasion and make it memorable – birthdays, anniversaries, corporate functions, a catch up with old friends, or simply visit for Sunday lunch or a traditional highland afternoon tea, the choice, and the pleasure, are all yours.
