Take The Tour

History and Splendour

Glenapp’s rich and storied history is reflected throughout the castle. Over the last 150 years, merchants, aristocrats and philanthropists have all called this beautiful castle home, and each left their mark. The strongest of those links is that of the First Lord Inchcape, once the Chairman of P&O. Sir James Mackay would stand atop the castle and gaze out to sea, keeping an eye on his ships as they sailed past.

A stay in the Glenapp Castle Penthouse Suite allows guests to experience Glenapp more like a home than a hotel. Venture out onto the roof and make the most of the endless views of grounds, gardens, the untamed landscape surrounding the estate, and across the sea to Ireland.

Scottish Luxury

Whether in the 2 or 4 Bedroom Option

The Penthouse Suite's collection of stunning bedrooms and bathrooms are ideal for families or groups of friends to call home for a short stay or long-term vacation on the Scottish west coast. Glenapp Castle Penthouse Suite features four individually designed bedrooms: The Elsie Mackay, The Poppy Wyndham, The Kintyre, and The Waverley. In each, you’ll find a super king size bed, which can also be set up as twin single beds, fresh flowers, and luxurious bathrobes and slippers.

All bedrooms and bathrooms boast stunning sea views, featuring roll top baths, walk in showers, as well as bespoke toiletries and thoughtful amenities.


A stay in Glenapp Castle Penthouse Suite includes, upon request, your own private chef, who will be on hand to prepare your dinners on any evening. Your personal butler will be on hand to serve and recommend a fine selection of cocktails and drinks to accompany your dining. You will be able to chose from our gourmet three-course dinners, or perhaps wish to experience the delicious seven-course tasting menu with a specially selected wine flight. Your private chef will prepare your daily breakfast to order and this can be enjoyed watching the Chef at work in the bespoke kitchen or in the main dining room in Glenapp Castle Penthouse Suite. Whatever you choose, dining will be a memorable experience. Dining is also available each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main Castle Dining Rooms on the first floor.

Your butler will be on hand, discreetly, throughout your stay. They will be there to meet you on arrival, help arrange your activities and experiences, oversee all your dining preferences, recommend your wines and anticipate your wishes.

In the Press

The Times

There are a lot of rooms (and rooms off rooms). "There's a sauna," the youngest shouts from down the hall. “I've found a massage room," my partner says. It is like finding hidden compartments in a jewellery box. From the hall you are into a tech-free library with board games and puzzles, Enid Blyton annuals and coffee-table books; next there's a snug lounge with coombed ceilings and a gilded mirror that turns into a 65in smart TV. We lose the children to the Xbox and carry on.
