Ayrshire Coastal Path

The Ayrshire Coastal Path from Glenapp to Skelmorlie runs 100 miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife. Boasting the “Scotland’s Great Trails” designation, walking one of the 12 sections is the perfect way to spend an active day out exploring. Or why not stay for longer and complete the entire trail, not forgetting to claim your personalised certificate as a memento!

 Glenapp Castle.

 

Welcome to a truly hidden place. A place to be inspired, reflect, recharge and reconnect; where you will feel ‘at home’ whether you’re travelling on your own or with a party of friends.

As you sweep up the long tree clad drive you will glimpse the beautiful façade of Glenapp Castle; encapsulating the romance of the Scottish Baronial style with magical towers, turrets, and crenellations. Once inside our luxury 5 star castle hotel a world of Victorian splendour is yours.

Oak panelled halls lead to the heart of the castle offering stunning views out to sea and the famous volcanic outcrop of Ailsa Craig. Beyond that you can see the Isle of Arran, Holy Island, and, on a clear day, the hills of Northern Ireland.

The luxury, award-winning five star hotel in Ayrshire, Scotland, provides an intimate level of service with genuine attention to detail. It has great beauty in its period furnishings and interiors as well as through the breath-taking gardens, forest, and the seascapes that surround that castle. Welcome to Glenapp Castle.

 

Our guest rooms

All of the public rooms at the castle are on the first floor. There are bedrooms on the ground, first and second floors. All of these are accessible by lift though some are more suitable than others for guests who have difficulty with stairs. The castle has good facilities and access for the disabled. Please ask at the time of reservation if you require these facilities.

There are seventeen guest rooms at Glenapp Castle. All of these rooms are individually designed and lavishly furnished and equipped to the same high standard. They are priced according to their location in the building, their views and their floor area. Many of our rooms have superb sea views. Our ground floor rooms are beautiful rooms which face the garden and woodlands are generally priced less than our first and second floor rooms with a sea view.
