I organized a trip for ten gentlemen to Ackergill Tower to experience 'true Scotland'. The Amazing Venue team (event manager of Ackergill Tower - group of companies) did a splendid job in terms of organization and guidance according to our likings. The property is very well kept, food was great and the options for activites (organized by the hotel) numerous.... 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

We can all reel off the names of the truly great hotels in the world but if I were a betting person I would venture a tender on the fact that one day Ackergill Tower will be one of them. There is a down side. It's a long, long way from anywhere, in fact it's nearest neighbour of any note... More

Little did we know what to expect when booking a stay at Ackergill Tower, what we found was a warm welcome, a very comfortable bed and a great dining experience. This was day three of our tour around Scotland and was a very pleasant surprise in the wet and windy north of Scotland. No matter how cold and wet outside... More

The location is incredibly peaceful, the building is beautiful and there are fantastic views (especially if you brave the stairs to the roof). The food is gorgeous and the staff are incredibly helpful and attentive. We would definitely return.

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.

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!
