Property Description

Owners Graham and Fay Cowan have painstakingly restored Glenapp Castle to its former glory, after years of neglect. Opened to guests in 2000, the castle is a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Association and rightly recognised as one of Scotland's finest country house hotels. The castle is a spectacular example of the 'Scottish Baronial' style of architecture, set in magnificent private gardens and grounds high on a hill looking out across the Irish Sea to Arran, Ailsa Craig and the Mull of Kintyre. All of the original character and atmosphere of this spectacular Victorian stately home has been retained and every room has been individually decorated in traditional style and furnished with carefully chosen fine antique furniture and original art. The 30 acres of grounds have also been restored to provide a magical expanse of glorious gardens and woodland, of particular appeal being the two and a half acre walled garden with its many unusual specimens and an impressive 150ft Victorian glasshouse. Guests may spend rewarding moments strolling through the terraced formal gardens or play croquet on the lawn, or in more energetic mode, tennis on the all-weather tennis court. Dining each evening at the castle is a peerless experience with glorious six course gourmet dinner created by a skilled and professional team. The dining room has Three AA Rosettes and a choice of fine wines is available from the castle cellar. The surrounding Ayrshire and Galloway countryside is ruggedly beautiful with many places of interest for guests to visit. Glenapp is open from the end of March through to New Year. The castle may also be made available for exclusive use reservation throughout most of the year and in this guise becomes a wildly romantic setting for weddings and a relaxing retreat for sporting breaks and corporate entertaining.

"Thank you for your follow up. Everything worked out just great. All enjoyed the Microtel and they were very accomodating and pleasant to work with. Your service was excellent and made the entire process for guests very easy. It eliminated the need for the guests to have to find or choose a property on their own. Location and price was set for them all they had to do was register!!! Thank you again and I informed all guests of your site and highly recommend for any future gatherings." G.B. - Danbury, CT
