Ackergill Tower


Ackergill Tower is a truly magical exclusive-use Chic Retreat, accessed easily from Inverness or the nearby Wick Airport, and just a stones throw from John O'Groats at the tip of the Scottish Highlands. Weddings, celebrations or family get togethers are the perfect excuse to take over this exclusive seaside venue which has 17 bedrooms and 5 cottages throughout the grounds. 


The experienced Akergill Tower team deliver a bespoke service and take care of every detail, however small, throughout your stay. You can create your own schedule of activites and entertainment as well as choose your own wine and menus. There is an endless list of things to do including golf (a choice of 3 x 18 hole courses), archery, clay pigeon shooting and traditional Scottish sports, as well as musical interludes and entertainment.

All country pursuits however would not be complete without a beach bonfire and hot toddy to round off the evening.


You have to be realistic when you come to Ackergill; you will most certainly return home a few pounds heavier after the heavenly dining experience here! Ackergill Tower are lucky enough to have a vegetable garden full of fresh produce and a garden courtyard overflowing with fresh herbs that the team of chefs use in the kitchens. Meats and fish are sourced from the local estates, rivers and the surrounding coastline.

Martin the Sommelier carefully selects fine and interesting wines from around the world, ensuring that the cellar has something appealing for every palette. An evening at Ackergill Tower wouldn't be the same without wee drams from the wonderful Old Pulteney distillery and Martin's delicious homemade Sloe Gin.
