Ackergill Tower

Wick, Caithness, Highlands, KW1 4RG

Majestically presiding over the North Sea is the spectacular Ackergill Tower. A 15th-century castle with a fascinating history, it is now an exclusive use venue with the "wow" factor. Standing within stunning Caithness countryside, three miles from Wick and 10 minutes from Loch Killimster, this is a coveted location for weddings, parties and corporate events.

It is one of the most sought after retreats in the world. Purposely low profile and totally private, this stunning 15th century Scottish castle is truly an idyllic backdrop for memorable events. Ackergill Tower sits on the edge of the rugged Scottish coastline, overlooking miles of sandy beaches stretching into the distance.

With some of the worlds finest staff, and an array of activities, a stay at Ackergill is always packed with adventure, laughter and excitement. A celebrity hideaway, one of the best wedding locations in the world or a family get together, Ackergill is a truly breathtaking experience, creating memories that you and your lucky guests will treasure forever.

The Tower can be hired for a day, weekend, week or month and provides superior service, fine dining cuisine based on seasonal, local produce, exceptional wine and whisky, endless outdoor activities and accommodation brimming with character and comfort.


We offer luxury five star accommodation in a range of rooms, suites and cottages. Each individual bedroom has character, history and has its own unique story to be told, and the cottages have their own air of exclusivity, beautifully and tastefully decorated to complement the unique architecture of each.

In addition, there is the self-contained TreeHouse fitted with a kitchen and audio-visual equipment located within the grounds, enveloped by 150-year-old sycamore trees. Whatever the occasion, we have a room to suit, from the Smuggler's Snug to the "everything is possible" creativity of the Tree House.
