Ackergill Tower, The Highlands of Scotland

Exclusive Use

Ackergill, Wick, Caithness, KW1 4RG

    Ackergill Tower, one of the most sought after hotels in the world. Purposely low profile and totally private, this stunning 15th century Scottish Castle is truly an idyllic backdrop for all of the most important and memorable of life’s events.

    From spectacular weddings, celebrations and family parties through to rewarding corporate events and meetings, Ackergill is your escape from the everyday.

    Situated on the edge of the bay, the warm and friendly atmosphere inside the Tower, coupled with the care and attention we apply ensures that every day is dreamlike.

    You can curl up by the fire with a book, explore the beach or indulge in a range of activities that span the entire alphabet. A short sample includes archery, canyoning, cookery demonstrations, fishing, falconry, golf, glass blowing, kayaking, Midnight beach bonfires, off-roading, quad biking, riding, shooting, whisky tasting – or simply staying in the deliciously comfortable beds to catch some z’s.

    We offer luxury five star accommodation, located near the world famous John O'Groats.

    Each individual bedroom has character, history and has its own unique story to be told.
