“Truly unique experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

One night at the castle was more than enough to truly feel like a prince and a princess. It is located in a very private zone so there aren't any "outside" distractions, although the pub is really close (that is good).
The castle has been refurbished wit classic furniture. The cooking service is just delightful, we were received with an amazing cake and some cookies. In the second floor there was a selection of single malt whiskys from all around Scotland. The castle do not have a TV which allows the guests to focus on the real important things such as sharing and to have quality time. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is no need to buy spices. There are bathtubs so the experience can be really romantic as well.

In the outside there was a lightbulb that didn't work at the beginning, but then when it was on, it gave the castle totally another perspective by night.

Scotland has tons of castles and fortified houses, but there aren't castles that can be lived totally by ourselves such like this. It is truly an amazing experience in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. Simon and his wife are great people.

Totally recommend to spend at least 4 nights there. I'm going back for sure!

“Bucket List must!”

This gorgeous gem of a castle is fully restored with enough mod cons to keep you happy, but with a healthy dose of "lost in time" tranquility. Absolutely perfect - comfy beds, a clean and well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook in, which we did to take advantage of the large, barrel vaulted dining room. Phone signal is scarce, but a friendly pub is 5 minutes walk away for wifi/internet access, so not an issue. Kilmartin Castle is a must for families with older children and is super dog friendly. Can't wait to return.

“Be King or Queen of your own Castle!”
Reviewed September 14, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

people found this review helpful

Think of it as a 16th century castle renovated and decorated, so it feels cosy. Walk to the local pub in 5 minutes or have wonderful Ali cook a meal for you, served in the arched stone ceiling dining room. Listen to classic record while sitting at the wood fired oven while sipping some single malt. Wait! There is only one problem: You never want to leave again... no doubt we will be back.

“Historic, cozy space in a wonderful Scottish village!”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My husband and I have stayed here twice (Dec 2016 and August 2017), and both times were absolutely perfect. The space, while large, still feels incredibly cosy. It is well-stocked with supplies—they even have a good collection of rain/walking gear, which is super nice—we didn't want for anything while we were there. The beds are incredibly comfortable, there is plenty of hot water for the huge, gorgeous clawfoot bathtubs, and plenty of wood for the fire. Sitting in front of the fire in the evening, listening to the record player and drinking tea is a memory we will always cherish. Do yourself a huge favor and get this place in your life!

“A Unique Weekend”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had the pleasure of staying in Kilmartin Caslte over a long weekend in January...the place was fantastic. We loved the blend of history and modern touches.

The place is spacious with hidden secrets at every turn.

My favourite part was spending nights by the huge wood burning stove whilst playing board games with family.

I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique place to stay in an area full of rich Scottish history.
