Period. Not much more to say about Skibo. The Castle, the golf, the staff, the food, the views, the activities, the atmosphere. My favorite place on Earth. I've been coming here for 10 years and it just keeps getting better and better.

In short, we arrived with golf clubs and never saw our travel club case again. We asked for it the day before we were leaving and the staff said they would round it up.

You will never stay anywhere more magical than Skibo. Food is AMAZING. accommodations are top notch. Spa and Pool are over the top. Golf course is hardly used. You will be treated like kings and queens

Stunning location, with lots to do and see. I had a great round of golf as well as clay pigeon shooting and the girls went riding. The food was excellent and they are good at encouraging you to meet other guests. Very enjoyable stay, I can't recommend it enough.

We were very fortunate to be invited to dine and play golf at the Carnegie Club on our recent visit to Scotland. The place is like Disneyland on steroid for golf lovers (does that make sense??). The view, golf course, staff, service, food, clubhouse..... everything was top notch. The beautiful golf course was challenging but playable ... and in immaculate... More

Skibo Castle is outstanding. Friendly but sophisticated. Excellent dining. Huge bedrooms and bathrooms. Wonderfully comfortable beds. Choose either private dining or join your fellow guests round Mr. Carnegie's massive dining table. House party atmosphere. A wonderful heated swimming pool. One of THE best golf courses. Riding. Playbarn for children. Lodges in the grounds for families. Attentive staff. Beautiful grounds. Clay... More

We had an amazing long weekend at Skibo. We were kept busy with horse riding, Clay Pigeon shooting and spa treatments. It was a special weekend with friends and I look back on it fondly. I would love the opportunity to go again one day.

Every minor detail taken care of. I spent 4 wonderful days as a guest of a member. ( a dear friend) I didn't see the bill so can't comment on value for money. However I would expect to pay a lot as it was the best. The grounds and the buildings are so beautiful, I was there in June, there... More
