Kilmartin Castle has been imaginatively restored by owners Stef & Simo who have a passion for old buildings, antiques, artworks and vinyl. The history and character of the building is intact, whist high quality fixtures and fittings have been incorporated to provide guests with a luxury 16th Century castle experience. Underfloor heating hides under the original flagstones on the ground floor, in The Snug and in the turret bathrooms. Wood burning stoves make castle bedrooms extra cosy and all of the materials used during the 2019 restoration have been carefully considered from encaustic floor tiles to lime paints to concrete worktops and basins to copper baths. You will not find another Scottish castle like this one!
Kilmartin Castle has a rich history, built in 1550 for John Carswell, Rector of Kilmartin Church and then Bishop of the Isles. From 1565 the castle was held by the Campbell Clan for 200 years, then lay as a ruin for a following 200. Now, Kilmartin Castle is a small luxury bed and breakfast for those in search of friendly hospitality and a stylish place to stay in a unique part of Scotland. Also available for exclusive use, Kilmartin Castle is the perfect retreat for couples, families and friends.
Kilmartin Castle sits at the top of Kilmartin Glen, which boasts 8,000 years of history. Burial cairns and standing stones are all within walking distance of the castle, as is Kilmartin Museum, which has just received funding to expand due to the large number of recent and regular finds in the area. There is also talk of Kilmartin Glen becoming a UNESCO World Heritage site, so make sure you visit this hidden gem before everybody hears about it!
