Kilmartin Castle, Argyll, Scotland

Following extensive refurbishment at the loving hands of the current owners, Stef & Simon, Kilmartin Castle is now open to the public for the first time in over 400 years as a self-catering home-away-from-home. Invite your nearest and dearest, set off on a Scottish adventure and fulfill your childhood dreams of being the king/queen of your very own castle!

Kilmartin Castle was originally built in 1550 for John Carswell, Rector of Kilmartin Glen and later Bishop of The Isles, where he lived for around 15 years before moving to his new residence at Carnasserie Castle (now ruined), just 1.5 miles north of Kilmartin.

The castle was passed to and held by the Campbell Clan, one of the largest and most powerful of the Highland clans. After many years in the hands of the Campbell Clan, the castle was abandoned and left to rack and ruin for well over 200 years.

Now, following an extensive refurbishment and some much needed TLC, Kilmartin Castle is available to rent on a self-catered basis; the perfect Scottish retreat for walkers, nature-lovers, couples, families and friends alike.

"We had a wonderful time and loved the quirkiness of the d├ęcor throughout. Especially appreciated the complimentary Glenmorangie! Such a short stay, I wish we were here a lot longer! Thanks Si and Stef for sharing your home with us!"
