As seen on Channel 4's Great British Buildings: Restoration of the Year!
Perched on an ancient incline, with unbeatable views over the waters of Stornoway, this inspiring, gothic-revival style castle hails from the mid-1800’s. Commissioned by Sir James Matheson, its historic walls have harboured nobility, WW2 hospital patients, college and school students, but now, after a dedicated restoration, has opened its doors to visitors from across the globe to enjoy a range of self catering apartments.
On the ground floor, wander the star-lined corridors, delicately restored ballroom, family room and opulent whisky bar, before tucking into deliciously, handcrafted island dishes in our popular Storehouse Café. Opening times during the main season from April 1st are 10am till 4pm Monday to Sunday with reduced seasonal opening hours in the Winter -closed Monday to Wednesday, and open Thursday – Sunday 10am till 3pm.
