Duntrune Castle, Crinan, Kilmartin, Argyll (Sleeps 1-5)

Duntrune Castle is in a beautiful part of Argyll, in the centre of a 5000-acre estate. This 12th-century castle and its estate are home to 5 beautiful holiday cottages. They offer the perfect place to stay for those who want a break away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day living. Whether you are seeking solitude and silence or a base for exploring a variety of activities, we are ideally located. Crinan & Kilmartin are within easy reach along with numerous attraction and places of interest.

Situated at the narrows between deep water and a tidal loch, Duntrune was built to guard the glens of Kilmartin and Kilmichael from seafaring marauders. Always a stronghold in those days, it was never the scene of a major conflict and is now accepted as the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland. The vaulted rooms on the ground floor date from the 12th Century, and the remainder of the keep from the 16th.

Guests can choose from one of four cottages on the estate, all of which have been tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard.

Seated high upon the spectacular rugged coastline of Argyll and surrounded by the outstanding landscape of the ancient kingdom of Dalriada, Duntrune Castle & estate is a very special place.

There is so much to enjoy both on the estate and in the surrounding area; beautiful countryside and coastlines to wander, pre-historic sites to explore, beaches, swimming, fishing; deer stalking or simply tranquillity for those who want to relax & re-charge batteries.
