A sublime experience
Nothing compares to the Kilmartin Castle experience. Stunningly restored Castle. If you are looking for a unique, luxurious and remote place to stay then look no further than Kilmartin Castle. Simon and Steph are wonderful hosts and they have done an amazing job of restoring and bringing Kilmartin Castle into the 21st century. The area around the castle has been beautifully landscaped and the swimming pond is fantastic and a great way to awaken the senses!

The most spectacular place we have ever been
We were lucky enough to have exclusive use of Kilmartin Castle for our wedding in October this year. Stef and Simon introduced us to our lovely celebrant Annie, photographer Bill and chef Ali. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for our wedding and the whole weekend. It is a truly magical place and the attention to detail is beyond anything I have seen before.

Truly magical
We got married at Kilmartin Castle on the most beautiful fall day and the whole experience was beyond perfect. Simon and Stef have thought of every detail to make the castle comfortable and luxurious. We brought a few of our closest friends and it was a weekend we will never forget. Everyone who came to help with our wedding - Annie Loughlin, Bill Baillie, Ali Jones, and Iain Campbell - were just wonderful. It felt like they all truly cared about our experience and were so warm and professional. We came from New York and now both Scotland and Kilmartin Castle will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Next Time I Will Swim!
Kilmartin Castle makes me think of the way Maria Dahvana Headley’s retelling of Beowulf. Like the classic poem, this place transports the ancient into the 21st century, respecting the rich, historical core structure and adding, charm, quirk and a bit more magic. There are no monsters here or little plastic shampoo bottles. There is a concerted care to be environmentally respectful with how the place is run. We had a wonderful stay. Next time, I will brave the wild swim! Thank you, Steph and Si.

Birthday celebration
What an incredible stay! Our group had the best time and it’s safe to say none of us ever wanted to leave. So many wonderful personal touches to explore in the castle and that record collection! ❤️ The pub at Kilmartin Hotel was great and was an easy walk. We explored the nearby museum and took advantage of the walking trails. Stef and Simon were kind enough to leave a book with a special inscription along with a cake! Very special and appreciated touches as we were there to celebrate my 40th.

Thank you Stef and Simo
Kilmartin Castle is a dream! We’ve always dreamed of staying in a castle and this was a dream come true. Every space in the castle has so much attention to detail, I was literally taking pictures and notes if design elements and pieces of furniture that I hope to find for my own home. The space is so big with plenty of room for my family of 7. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and were more than comfortable. This is a 5 star stay with top of the line amenities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Kilmartin Castle?

I can't choose! All of our weddings are magical. As we are only big enough to hold small elopements, there's something so very romantic about a small group coming together in such an ancient place to mark the beginnning of such an exciting new chapter.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As well as having the perfect venue, it is so important to work with the right photographer. We suggest to our guests that these are the two most important dates to get booked, followed by your chef.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We have hosted a lot of weddings that include artists and it is always so beautiful to see their timelines for the day, which are often so beautifully sketched and always include the castle.

Describe Kilmartin Castle in 5 adjectives

Castle Luxury Romantic Scottish Wild

Where’s the best photo spot at Kilmartin Castle?

The end of the jetty to the wild swimming pond is a stunning location for a photograph, with the ancient Kilmartin Glen as a backdrop.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at Kilmartin Castle?

We had the pleasure of hosting Ridley Scott's wonderful family one New Year

What’s your favourite canapé?

Chef Ali makes a wonderful locally caught smoked mackrel pate with organic beetroot from the castle kitchen garden.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pulled pork sandwiches slow cooked in the Kamado Joe in the outdoor kitchen.

What is Kilmartin Castle most unique feature?

The love and care poured into the renovation is something that people mention to us regularly. We love this little castle. She's a part of the family and we are so happy to have the opportunity to share her with others.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Can we say "All of it"? We did a lot of the work ourselves and everything in the castle was carefully thought about every step of the way. We dug up floors to put underfloor heating in, ran pipework through a grandfather clock to preserve the integrity of the building, rebuilt the chimney with the original stone found whilst digging to put drains in. But, I think we are most proud that this once abandoned 16th century castle is now such a warm welcoming place, full of joy and happiness. Breathing new life into an old place has been such a rewarding experience.
