The House is still a much-loved family home and although not open to the public on a regular basis. The Woodland Gardens are open all the year round with wonderful views of the exterior of the House, with its fabulous scenic backdrop on Loch Fyne.

The present house at Ardkinglas was completed in the autumn of 1907 and is generally considered to be the architect Sir Robert Lorimer’s masterpiece.

It was built at a time when traditional materials were skillfully and creatively mastered by expert craftsmen but where a wealth of new technology could be incorporated into the design. The house remains practically unaltered and is a very popular location for TV dramas, film production and product launches.

The House is still a much-loved family home and although not open to the public on a regular basis, a private tour of the house can be booked at any time of the year. A public tour is available every Friday from April to end of September, booking is essential.
