Came to Ackergill with a large group on a business trip - what a treat. I haven't stopped dreaming of Scotland since. You have to appreciate rural, isolated areas & not be bothered by a bit of rain to appreciate Northern Scotland in general, and the same goes for Ackergill - visiting with a large group as we did was...

I visited here on a work trip in October. I could not fault the experience from start to finish. A warm Scottish welcome was complimented by consistently attentive service with a smile, nothing was ever too much. The surroundings of the tower are breathtaking and the scenery speaks for itself, there is nothing more peaceful than taking a walk down... More

the place is simply gorgeous. right on the sea, in a spectacular setting, fabulous both with the rain and with the sun. very hospitable and cordial. the food is quite good. it is pricey. worthy? yes. it is also children friendly, for good or bad. there is no elevator, but the friendly stuff carries your luggage up for you.

A wonderful Hotel right on the cliffs Even with the wind and snow gusting .Inside the open fires and true scottish fayre make it homely and warm The newly converted stables make beautiful individual and characterful rooms with their own special edginess Well worth a stay off the main track of tourist venues

There was a group of us went for Sunday Lunch to the Tower and was quite disappointed. The food was nothing special and was cold. We paid a lot of money for the lunch and expected better. You even had to pay £5 extra if you wanted tea or coffee which I thought was very steep. My granddaughter was also... More

We renewed our Wedding Vows at Ackergill Tower on the 30th November. We had such an amazing time. I had one of the best days of my life & wouldn't change a single thing. Karen & her team provided us with amazing personal service on our special day. It was relaxed & everyone really enjoyed themselves. We could not have... More

I will always have fond memories of Ackergill Castle because that is where my husband proposed to me. The staff set up a meeting with a falconer and various different birds to show us falconry. We interacted with falcons, different owls and an American bald eagle! At the end a beautiful white owl flew to me carrying a message on... More

A couple of months ago my wife and me were traveling around the north of Scotland. We visied Ackergill Tower and booked this hotel thinking it would be truly outstanding, but the service was not anything I expected. Only a few of the hotel staff seemed really professional. In my opinion it is a castle with great potential that is... More

Me and my husband decided to spend our honeymoon at Ackergill Tower which turned out to be the best decision ever. We stayed in the Dukes room which had a wonderful view of the sea and the cliffs. The service was excellent and so was the room, castle itself and available facilities. It was a stormy couple of days yet... More

What a wonderful place with a real atmosphere which engages you. We stayed in the Daffodil Suite which was wonderful and a great bed. The turreted bay window was great to sit relax and read. Sound of the sea was terrific. The rooms with log fire roaring were just great. Even though we stayed one night, we were made very... More
