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.
Glenapp Castle is a rare gift, a castle hotel, a place of grandeur and elegance but also a home steeped in history. Welcome to a truly hidden place. A place to be inspired, to reflect, to recharge and reconnect; where you will feel ‘at home’ whether on your own or with a party of friends. Glenapp has an intimacy in its service, with genuine attention to detail, but also a beauty in its period furnishings and interiors and through the breath-taking gardens, forest and the seascapes that surround the castle.
