Torrisdale Estate is situated midway down the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula, close to the fishing village of Carradale. Not surprisingly, many visitors to Torrisdale come to relax and absorb the glorious scenery, nature and wildlife in this beautiful and sometimes overlooked part of western Scotland.
The self-catering holiday accommodation consists of three garden flats sleeping 4-7 in Torrisdale Castle itself, and five traditional cottages on the estate sleeping 2-10.
Torrisdale is an ideal base for excursions to the islands of Islay, Jura, and Gigha. Birdwatching, walking - the Forestry Commission has some interesting walks in the area, and several golf courses.
The grounds offer excellent walking opportunities, and there is now the ability to walk a section of the Kintyre Way, directly from Torrisdale, without going near a public road. From the Kintrye Way link, the entire spine of Kintyre is now easily accessible.
Torrisdale has its own private beach, and you are welcome to bring your own canoes, dinghies, or other water sports equipment. Bikes can also be hired locally, and while not testing, the estate tracks are ideal for family bike rides.
