There is a slate patio and a wonderful view of the ocean. Each room had a hair dryer, bath robes and a heated floor in the... More

We stayed here in October 2014. What a fantastic location, you cant get closer to the sea than this. We stayed in the twin cottages ( Seashore ) to the side of the tower, you just opened the door and there was the sea just a few yards away. I could have sat there all day but there is so... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October 2014 to mark a special anniversary. And can not find a single thing to complain about. The castle itself is filled with fascinating artifacts of a long and interesting history. It has been lovingly restored and modernized in a way that allows it to provide 5 star accommodation without losing the feel for... More

I booked this wonderful hotel for only one night. When next I visit Scotland, I will book again for an extended period. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. From the tree lined entrance with bunnies and sheep to the amazing seacoast, with the sound of waves and seabirds. I stayed in The Stables--in the Captain Dibble suite, it was very spacious... More

Not only do you get to stay in a Scottish Castle that was build in 1475 which is pretty great in and of itself, but combine that with the Excellent location, extra freindly staff and great food and you have yourself a place you WILL want to come back to time and again.

The fact that we could describe our stay at Ackergill Tower as pleasant is a testament to how easy going we are and willing to arrange our holiday for ourselves. The Tower is in a dramatic location. A couple of staff members were very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the room had a great view. The castle... More

The excitement began as we drove up and had the first glimpse of this majestic Ackergill Tower along Sinclair Bay. We passed 8-10 adorable frolicking rabbits playing chase on the castle grounds. The area seemed remote, especially since we somehow missed the main entrance, making a left onto Ackergill Road, which led to a grass & gravel unpaved back entrance.... More
