Great location
94% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We are a luxury bed & breakfast throughout the year, but please reach out for available dates, if you are interested in exclusive use. A 16th Century authentic Scottish castle escape, nestled in the ancient landscape of Kilmartin Glen with 8,000 years of history to explore right on your door step. Standing stones, ancient forts, burial tombs, and ancient rock carvings make our wee Glen one of Scotland’s richest concentration of archeological sites. A true slice of genuine unspoiled Scotland.

The space
We have a 2 night minimum stay and you can find our individual rooms: Clarke | Carswell | 1550 and Speel listed under Kilmartin Castle.

If you would rather take the place exclusively though, you still can, so please ask.

All five en suite bedrooms have been individually designed to retain the rustic magic of a C16th castle while spoiling you with the comforts of modern living including wood burning stoves, extravagant walk in showers, roll top baths and of course, luxury bedding.

Guest access
Kilmartin Castle is yours to rule throughout your stay. Enjoy! As it takes a while to make the place lovely and clean for you, we do have to strictly stick to our check in and out times. We will welcome you with open arms from 4pm on the day of your arrival and be waving goodbye no later than 10am on the day of your departure.

If you do arrive earlier than 4pm the good folk at the Kilmartin pub, are always happy to see you.

Other things to note
We’ll happily introduce you to our local chef who can prepare an amazing locally sourced 3-5 course dinner for you in the castle dining room. We'll put you directly in touch to talk menus and prices once the booking is confirmed.

We both fell head over heels in love with Scotland whilst on a road trip in 2014. Kilmartin was, by far, our favourite Scottish village! So, when Kilmartin Castle went up for sale, a few weeks after our holiday ended, we couldn't resist starting a new adventure. We sold all our worldly possessions and bought it. Simon was a Creative Director and I was a Travel Journalist & Radio Broadcaster. We spent 6 months renovating Kilmartin Castle in 2019 and now we are very excited to share it with you! We live at the castle with our super friendly cat, King Frank, whilst offering bed and breakfast and when the castle is booked for exclusive use all three of us head off travelling in our campervan. Well behaved dogs, and cats are welcome at Kilmartin Castle.

During your stay
The entire castle is yours to Rule! Kilmartin Castle has been standing at the top of Kilmartin Glen since 1550. We found it after falling in love with Scotland on a road trip in Dec 2013. We became the proud 4th owners of this incredible building the following year. Our vision was to create an authentic castle retreat, welcoming and warm, rustic and honest. The castle walls and floors have been deliberately left with their original aged patina. Inside is vintage furniture and original artwork we've lovingly collected over time. With touches of luxury where they matter most. We opened Kilmartin Castle to visitors for the first time in 464 years in April 2014. Kilmartin Glen is truly a magical part of the world with lots to offer and we feel so privileged to be able to share it with you.
