Close, yet a world away
Discover Ackergill Tower and the Highlands – a memorable Scottish adventure awaits you.
Ackergill Tower castle may well be one of the remotest hotels in Scotland but it’s also easily accessible and, at the end of your journey, you’ll be rewarded with Five Star luxury, wonderful scenery and amazing experiences. From the low-lying coast in the east to majestic high cliffs and offshore stacks in the north, where castles and lighthouses dot the landscape, this is arguably one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe and you can see an abundance of wildlife, from puffins and eagles to seals and otters. Although the population is sparse, the welcome is always warm. From a visit to the former Viking settlement and principal town of Wick to one of the tiny fishing villages. There are local distilleries to discover too and the world-famous John O’Groats, the most northerly point in Britain. Or take yourself wind-surfing or sand yachting at Sinclair Bay. Whatever you do, be sure to drink in all the sights and sounds of this remote yet remarkable part of Scotland.
