Where history and luxury effortlessly combine

Nowhere rises to the big occasion like Ackergill Tower, a 15th century Scottish castle hotel.


Ackergill Tower hotel is one of the finest five star castle hotels in Scotland. Although it is the UK’s most northerly Grade A listed building, it has been sympathetically and sumptuously refurbished with 21st century luxuries, complimented by award-winning service. Stay in one of our 35 bedrooms or six self-catering luxury cottages, secluded on our 3,000 acre private estate. For the ultimate experience, spend a night tucked up in the treetops in Europe’s largest (and possibly most luxurious) treehouse with a bedroom. You’ll wake ready to enjoy your choice of exhilarating activities on land or water – or just the peace and quiet of a coastal stroll.
