Ardkinglas House Tours 

House Tours which include access to the house garden are available most Friday afternoons from April - September 

The Present house at Ardkinglas was completed in the autumn of 1907 and is generally considered to be the architect Sir Robert Lorimer's masterpiece.

It was built at a time when traditional materials were skillfully and creatively mastered by expert craftsmen but where a wealth of new technology could be incorporated into the design. The house remains practically unaltered and is a very popular location for TV dramas, film production and product launches.

Please contact us to ensure the tour is going ahead.   £12.00 per person, £6.00 primary school children, younger ones free.

The House is still a much-loved family home and although not open to the public on a regular basis, a private tour of the house can be booked at any time of the year (minimum charge applies).
