We stayed in Garden Cottage . It is a perfect spot for r and r . SO peaceful. ALL we heard were the birds singing by day and an owl hooting at night !! The cottage is so cozy and comfortable and the hot tub is the icing on the cake.

We stayed at Torrisdale Castle for New Year in the Servants Quarters! We were fortunate enough to be invited 'upstairs' for New Years Hogmonay and got to meet Niall and Emma's lovely family and friends! We had a perfect holiday, the castle and its location were awesome. Love the sauna and hot tub too.

Knowing the area well, but never having been to the Castle, we had a lovely week - visiting relatives in Carradale and beaches at Skipness, Torrisdale (with the resident seals), Carradale Bay and Machrishanish - all in the sunshine. The accommodation (servants quarters) was great, really cosy, so much so I want to turn the heating up now I am... More

Just returned from a long weekend at Torrisdale Castle staying in the servants quarters with my wife and two teenage daughters and felt compelled to write my first ever review on TripAdvisor. The apartment was extremely spacious and the decor and facilities were 5 star. The hot tub and sauna (included in the package) were great fun and we spent... More

We stayed in the garden cottage for a very relaxing 2 nights. We found the price very reasonable. The cottage was so cosy... Log burner, extremely comfy bed and well equipped holiday cottage which also comes with fantastic wood fired hot tub. You really feel like you have gotten away from the rat race! We had a car issue and... More

A stunning location and fabulous facilities and accommodation. The four of us stayed in the Servants Quarters for one week and we only wished it could have been longer. Despite it being the winter season for ferries to Arran and very quiet in the surrounding towns, the Castle leant itself to lots of R&R. The children (4 years old and... More

Thanks guys for the great review, and we are glad you enjoyed the facilities! I am just looking out my office window after 24 hours of rain, and I don't think you would have jumped in the river today after a sauna - you probably would have made it to Arran in 5 minutes such is the amount of water...

Stayed in the Servants Quarters at Torrisdale Castle for 2 nights and it was fab! Sleeps 6 and is extremely roomy, super clean and very homely. Owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. Also allowed to take our puppy with us which was great. Best of all was the outdoor hot tub and sauna in the woods. A few... More

Lovely spot away from the hustle and bustle down a 17 mile track. Grounds and our apartment (servants quarters) were fab!! Lots of exploring to be had without the need to get into your car weather permitting. Hosts were very polite and accommodating.

Thanks for the great review and we are glad you had a good time! The 17 mile single track road is an absolute glorious way to get here and was the road that inspired McCartney and Lennon to pen a 'Long and Winding Road'!! More
