Ardkinglas House Tours

(April to September on a Friday)

Private Tours Available all year round

House Tours which include access to the house garden are available every Friday 

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.   £7.50 per person, £3.50 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).

Booking is essential for all house tours.

Please phone 01499 600261 or email
