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

We won a three day weekend stay at South Lodge in a fund raising raffle….first prize…and it really is first prize. it is a magical spot, wonderful outlook from the cosy living room out to Arran and equally wonderful outlook from the comfortable bedroom to the woods of the castle estate, which are magnificent. Really interesting planting, extensive and in... More

Hi Liz and Phillip and thanks for the review. Whilst we hate to see the end of the summer weather, the estate as you say is really spectacular in Autumn. And the weather is usually very mild, so perfect for walking, and wildlife watching. Thanks again for the tips on the walled garden - more apples going in next year.... More

Our family cannot recommend Torrisdale highly enough. Our party consisted of 5 adults, yet on arrival we could have been mistaken for children...exploring our part of the castle and its grounds and looking for the secret room! Although the pictures show how incredible the accommodation is, they can't capture the size and grandeur of the servants quarters rooms. The mattresses... More
