Wonderful historic castle located in an idyllic position with period features, open fires and well-equipped games room for all the family to enjoy, plus within easy reach of beautiful sandy beaches.

Steeped in grandeur and offering a truly wonderful place to spend some time, this historic property offers the ideal base for your next Scottish getaway. Sleeping an impressive 13 guests and making room for four canine companions to join you for the stay, this delectable choice of accommodation promises an unrivalled break for both man and dog alike. Human members of the pack will find plenty to enjoy across cosy lounges and games rooms, whilst your four-pawed pals will readily embrace the surrounding 8 acres of garden and woodland.

Find somewhere comfy to rest your feet (or paws) in this delightful castle, where the dining room, lounge and games room greet you on the ground floor and seven impressive bedrooms await upstairs. Both the dining room and lounge feature open fires that invite you to curl up with your pup at your feet, planning for days ahead and nursing a wee dram. The lounge is also equipped with a smart TV for lazy nights lounging on the sofa, whilst the games room features a pool table, chess and poker for more competitive evenings in. Be sure to throw open French doors when blessed with bright and sunny weather, dining alfresco whilst Rover and the gang enjoy free roam of the outdoor space.

Discover an abundance of adventure close by in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stepping off from your doorstep to let your pup sniff out and chase local wildlife whilst you take in the view. Flock to nearby Campbeltown (3 miles) as a base for exploring the glorious Kintyre peninsula with its stunning sea views, or head to the wide sandy expanse of Machrihanish Beach (6 miles) where your dogs can chase a tennis ball, splash in the sea and feel the sand beneath their paws.
