Just back from a weeks holiday in the Servants Quarters at Torrisdale Castle. It was absolute luxury, the owners have thought of everything. Beautiful surroundings, peace and quiet and such fabulous accommodation to come home to everyday. We would highly recommend. Wish we had tried the sauna and hot tub, they were just getting this set up so think we will have to make a return visit to try them out. We also didn't manage to plant our tree - which is such a fabulous idea. We had a lovely holiday and really enjoyed the walks around the estate and a visit to the beach most nights - we even saw a few seals. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Within the ground floor of the castle are three spacious self-catering apartments and set within the peaceful wooded grounds are a further four superb cottages and houses.The Kintyre Way passes through the estate, which is an ideal base for those looking to complete the long distance walk in individual stretches, being almost halfway on the 87 mile route.Of special interest at Torrisdale is the organic tannery, specialising in natural coloured sheepskins and deer skins using an ancient tanning method to produce a superior skin. ... more less
