Castle of Park Tower House

Friday 10th - Monday 13th November

Join us for a long weekend away in possibly the grandest, and oldest, building we have ever stayed at in Scotland, for a luxuriously special break.

Castle of Park was built by a Thomas Hay in 1590 after he had been given the lands at Park by his father, the last abbot of Glenluce.  After a few centuries of habitation the tower lay empty for almost 100 years until Historic Scotland organised the restoration of the building, and it was subsequently leased out to the Landmark Trust who manage it as self catering property.

The venue itself is sandwiched between two areas of rolling hills, and green fields - the Machars and The Rhins of Galloway - by day both equally quiet and unspoilt areas that are usually bypassed by most tourists as they head for the highlands; and by night this area is part of the UKs first Dark Sky Park, an area which has very little light pollution and is great for getting out when the nights are long to see the stars above our heads.
