Very welcoming arrival and bags taken to room while we were shown the main areas of the castle. Service was second to none. We had the 6 course gourmet dinner and the food was fabulous. Our suite had a great view of the gardens and Ailsa Craig and was very comfortable.

Hi, We have guest suites with separate baths and showers and other rooms that have showers over baths. Please call us and we can discuss individual rooms. The law in Scotland prohibits smoking inside, we have two dedicated areas available for smokers outside. The castle does not have any balconies. My email address is gm@glenappcastle.scot if I can be of any further assistance. Best wishes John
