High above the dramatic coastline of southwest Scotland, overlooking the Irish Sea and the iconic Ailsa Craig Island, sits Glenapp Castle. This baronial castle is hidden from the rugged surrounding landscape by 15 hectares of magical parkland including an Italian garden designed by the renowned horticulturalist Gertrude Jekyll.Underneath its fairytale towers and turrets are imposing rooms with rich fabrics, art and antiques echoing the splendour of a bygone era. With award-winning international cuisine, Glenapp Castle is the ideal base for country sports and world-class golf. Glenapp’s all-weather boat allows guests to explore the surrounding Scottish isles and whisky distilleries, or to fish and observe the spectacular wildlife.
As you sweep up the long tree clad drive you will glimpse the beautiful facade of the castle, encapsulating the romance of the Scottish Baronial style, with magical towers, turrets and crenellations. Once inside, a world of Victorian splendour is yours. Oak panelled halls lead to the heart of the castle offering stunning views out to sea, taking in the famous volcanic outcrop of Ailsa Craig, then on to the Isle of Arran, Holy Island and on a clear day, the hills of Northern Ireland.
