    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    About this property

    Rich in history, this house was originally built in 1560 and subsequently partially destroyed in 1640 by the Duke of Argyll. S59543 has been painstakingly rebuilt and renovated with modern comforts by its current owner. Set over five floors, this property has 6 bedrooms, sleeping 12 comfortably and boasting luxurious comfort without compromising original character. 
    The Great Hall is dominated by the wonderful, vast log fire and exquisite hand painted ceiling. It is perfect for a celebratory dinner, business venue or an intimate wedding, which is complimented by the small and unique chapel on the ground floor. All who visit learn to use the castle as their own and greatly enjoy the warmth of both its own unique charm and the magnificent outdoors that surround it.
    This Castle in Glen Isla is exquisitely positioned and set against a stunning backdrop of rugged Perthshire countryside. It is perfect as a sumptuous bolt hole for total relaxation or for those wishing to participate in all the area has to offer.
    Please note: Prices for Christmas and New Year are POA

    The castle has been rebuilt and refurbished to offer harmony between the 16th Century and modern 21st Century style living.  The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a huge range.  The breakfast room is ideal for the first meal of the day or for intimate suppers and the crockery with its tartan designs recalls the Highlands.  The tiny chapel on the ground floor is exquisite and gives the castle its heart.
    The Great Hall is magnificent with a beamed painted ceiling.  The roaring log fire and comfy sofas make it the ideal place to totally relax surrounded by fascinating memorabilia, family photos and books.  The views from all the windows are breathtaking.
    Up the spiral stairs, the bedrooms are all individually furnished, each one having its own style.  There are four posters, tartan rugs, cashmere throws, heating, electric blankets and decanters of whisky.  The family bathroom is huge. Two bedrooms have en suite facilities and each of my family thought their bedroom was the best!  They are all lovely and very comfortable.
