We booked Torrisdale for our small wedding in June 2015. We couldn't have hoped for a more beautiful weekend. The accommodation all have their own unique selling points but our personal favourites were the Garden Cottage and the Servants Quarters. The setting is fantastic and located next to a beach which is perfect for families. The absolute added bonus was... More

We had one of our best holidays ever at Torrisdale. With its jagged coastline views, undulating hillscape and secluded beaches, Kintyre is an absolute gem. Its scenery really is second to none and feels lesser explored than places on the traditional Scottish tourist trail. Torrisdale itself is an oasis of calm and tranquility. I could feel the stress drain out... More

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.

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!

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...
