An absolutely stunning location what a beautiful place! The castle itself was very well appointed with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The hot tub and sauna added a special extra to the holiday. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great week in the Servants Quarters this July with 3 kids to entertain (all ours!). It's very spacious, more so than the photos online suggest, we even managed a small table tennis tournament in the kitchen. There's a secret room which kept the kids quiet for a while trying to find it. The accommodation is very comfy... More

an internet search led us to this wonderful wee cottage The views from the picture window were never the same and how I miss it. The wonderful decor (love the wooden panel in the lounge), the equally divine wood burner and the beautiful gothic windows made it all the better. The dog was made to feel welcome and being so...

Thanks for the great review, and look forward to seeing you again. Dogs and humans all very welcome! Sorry about the lack of freezer - now sorted -schoolboy error on my part as I thought I had ordered the correct model when we added in new appliances a few weeks ago, and realised it had no freezer compartment!

Garden Cottage is delightful, tucked away among mature trees and overlooking the walled garden. Birdsong and the murmur of the stream are the only sounds in its secluded location. Niall and Emma are welcoming hosts. The cottage itself has high ceilings which give it a spacious, airy feel with traditional features like the wainscotting and wooden shutters. The decor has...

We recently stayed for a long weekend at Garden Cottage, Torrisdale Estate. It was a fantastic cosy and peaceful place and we are already considering a return visit. We loved the hot tub, the Estate grounds, Carradale beach and Torrisdale Bay, in fact the whole area is great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our superb range of self-catering properties on Kintyre's east coast provide accommodation for groups of between 2 and 10 people. The estate offers the perfect opportunity to experience the comforts of modern day living whilst relaxing within a stunning and stress-free environment. Breaks are available for a minimum of 3 nights throughout the year.We are also embracing green technology, and have installed a biomass boiler to serve several properties on the estate, and a small hydro scheme which will generate enough electricity for 90 houses. In addition, our innovative tree planting scheme allows you, as our guest, to plant a tree for every holiday taken. Within the ground floor of the castle is a beautifully furnished self-catering apartment 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
