A little slice of heaven on earth. A stunningly beautiful property, set within grounds that are breathtaking. The service is faultless, creating first class service with a homely feel. The gold course is one of the best I've played anywhere in the world, combining stunning views with a stern test.

I have been fortunate enough to visit Skibo Castle on many occasions over the last decade. The golf course is my passion and I have played at many great venues all around the globe, and as a professional I can honestly say that Skibo is top of my list. The course design is faultless with some of the best bunkering... More

Just played The Carnegie Club and it is incredible in so many ways. The layout is magnificent with not one weak hole and breathtaking scenery as an added bonus. I was fortunate to play with a member and this course is way better than most of the "old" links courses around the country but I just can't believe the rating... More

I spent three days at Skibo.it is not a hotel it is a private members club and you go by invitation of a member or as a member. I have stayed in beautiful places all round the world but this was the most exclusive and personalised experience I have ever had! The staff were polite, gracious and non intrusive you... More

The castle and grounds are truly magnificent , the facilities excellent and we had fantastic service from the activities coordinators, golfing and fishing etc. the room was beautiful and comfortable...

Thank you for your comments about The Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle. For the benefit of those who may read this review I feel it is important to make it clear at the outset that The Carnegie Club is a private members’ club, rather than a hotel and, as such, is not open to the general public. The only way... More

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. We ended up leaving our clubs to be shipped because Skibo apparently never found the travel case but didn't want to tell us - of course... More

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??).
