Glenapp Castle Hotel

AYRSHIRE, SCOTLAND

This stunning Victorian Scottish castle hotel has a rich history.  Glenapp Castle was designed in 1870, by David Bryce one of Edinburgh’s celebrated architects, for one of Scotland’s most well known shipping families.  Later in 1944, when the castle was owned by James Lyle Mackay (the first Earl of Inchcape), Winston Churchill stayed at the same time as General Eisenhower was staying at nearby Culzean Castle where they discussed the future D-Day Landings with Lord Inchcape.

Glenapp Estate, having fallen into disrepair, was rescued over twenty years ago by Scottish hoteliers, who completely restored the castle and gardens back to their former glory.  The castle now sits in the transitional area of the South Ayrshire and Galloway Biosphere.  This area is the only UNESCO Biosphere in Scotland.  Biosphere’s are areas of world-class environments that are used as places to learn sustainable development where communities learn to live and enhance the natural environment rather than wearing away at it.  This is one of the most unspoilt parts of Scotland.
