glorious Highland castle and estate, now home to the Carnegie Club. Set

their lifetime, after which they must become members of the club in order
to return. The Carnegie Club recreates the Skibo from times past and residents
are treated as houseguests of a great sporting estate from the Edwardian

itself is enchantingly beautiful beyond words and is the ideal base from
both a golfing and sightseeing perspective.

with an original marble pool, gymnasium facilities and on-site golf course.

era. Rest assured that should you stay at Skibo Castle just once in your
life, the occasion will forever remain a treasured memory!
