Glenapp Castle – Location & Map
Glenapp Castle is located on the coast of Ayrshire, Scotland, 75 miles south of Glasgow with its International Airport or a 1 hour 30 minute drive along one of Scotland’s most scenic coastal roads. Edinburgh Airport is 110 miles away. Transfers to and from the airport can be arranged with optional stops including whisky tasting or visiting the Robert Burns museum, and for those arriving by helicopter, Glenapp has its own landing pad.
The castle faces the Firth of Clyde and the surrounding islands, and the local area is steeped in history with links to William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns. The islands played an important part in the history of Scotland, with colonisation by the Irish and the Vikings, and today offer a rich heritage and an abundance of wildlife.
Arran and the Mull of Kintyre offer some of the world’s most famous distilleries and impressive golf courses, along with the beautiful Sanda Island with its seals, basking sharks and birds. Or why not visit the idyllic isle of Gigha and enjoy lunch at the renowned Boathouse Restaurant, or take a round of golf at Gigha’s nine hole course with stunning sea views.
The iconic island of Ailsa Craig is now an uninhabited wildlife sanctuary only accessible by boat, and is home to an amazing array of seabirds, sharks and whales.
Bespoke itineraries can be easily arranged using Glenapp’s private boat.
