Skibo Castle

Skibo Castle in Dornoch

In a secluded corner of Scotland’s eastern highlands, on the shores of the Dornoch Firth, sits Skibo Castle, home to one of the world’s most prestigious private clubs. Skibo’s name is originally Norse, meaning ‘Fairyland of Peace’, and such is the allure of the landscape that it drew one of the world’s leading 19th-century industrialists, Andrew Carnegie, to build a castle here on the site of an ancient Viking fort. Skibo Castle and its five-star facilities can now be yours to enjoy.

Staying at Skibo Castle - A truly special experience

From your first sight of the castle, down the long beech-lined drive, you know you’re somewhere special. Stay in one of the castle suites and enjoy the timeless elegance of their Edwardian origins but with 21st-century sophistication, from complimentary wi-fi to bespoke bathroom toiletries. Alternatively, the estate lodges offer the perfect getaway for families, each beautifully appointed with its own charm and character, and complete with all modern facilities.

Hospitality is the cornerstone of the club’s ethos, much as it was in Carnegie’s day, and it begins the moment you arrive. Whether it’s the conviviality of hosted dinners, casual clubhouse lunches, or simply sipping single malt by fireside, The Carnegie Club offers an experience like no other. And with a guest book reading like a Who’s Who of Edwardian Britain, including Rudyard Kipling, the Rockefellers, and even King Edward VII, you’re in fine company.

Activities around Skibo Castle

But there’s more to Skibo than golf. No self-respecting Scottish estate would be complete without offering trap and pheasant shooting, fishing, horse-riding, cycling, quad-biking, even falconry, and tailored itineraries ensure you get the best out of your stay. And with 7,500 acres of majestic Highland landscape to enjoy, a good walk is always on offer if you don’t want one spoiled by a little white ball.
