Welcome to Glenapp Castle In April of the year 2000 a very unique and exciting event took place in the sleepy Scottish fishing village of Ballantrae in Ayrshire. For the first time, after many years of neglect, followed by a painstaking restoration project.
Glenapp castle, a vast and spectacular Victorian mansion set high above the village overlooking the Irish sea and the island of Ailsa Craig opened its doors as an exclusive luxury hotel. The castle has been the home of the Cowan family since 1994.
For six years their full time occupation has been the restoration and conversion of the castle and its thirty acres of magnificent gardens. That work is now finished and Glenapp has been restored to its rightful glory.
The Philosophy `We want our visitors to consider themselves honoured personal guests in our home. We want them to feel, as we do, that this is a special place where they can come to escape from the world for a while and renew energies in peace, quiet and privacy, while enjoying all the creatur comforts of a luxury hotel`.
