What a sight, starkly guarding against Norse raiders. It is easy to envisage the residents keeping watch for Eric the Red and his cohorts. We arrived on a wet and misty day and were immediately embraced by the warmth of the welcome and the lounge room. Unfortunately, we had to trudge up two flights of stairs - no lifts here,... More

Just returned from a fantastic honeymoon at this fantastic place ! Stunning location, both inside and out, were given a four poster suite with views looking out to sea, great window seat for us to soak in the view. When we stayed the castle was quiet (only a handful of other guests), and pretty much had the pace to ourselves,... More

We had our wedding reception at Ackergill in August 2013. The event went very well and the guests enjoyed the atmosphere commentating that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. From the bride and groom's perspective just about everthing was great, just the planning could have been better. We dealt with too many so called managers/advisors... More

Ackergill was an amazing experience, outstanding location and building backed up with understated luxury and warm charm offered by staff. I nice surprise was the very reasonable drink prices and dinner in the dinning room made us feel royal. When in Scotland it really is a treat to stay in a castle and Ackergill delivered an experience of a lifetime!

Lovely afternoon tea in front of roaring fire. The curios in the turretted loo fascinated our ten year old and the 13 year old decided she'd like to live in a castle like Ackergill. The voucher for the experience was a fantastic Christmas present.

From our arrival at Akergill Tower we couldn't have been more pleased. It is an imposing sight to pull up to the front door of this magnificent building(s) and our awe only increased once inside. The building, furnishings and contents as a whole are truly what you would expect from a castle like this. Akergill's location against the North Sea... More

A most fantastic venue, and with enough of us attending that we had the entire place to ourselves we could not have wished for better.
