"Heaven on earth" was how Andrew Carnegie described Skibo Castle, his glorious Highland castle and estate, now home to the Carnegie Club. Set in its own 7,500-acre estate, Skibo Castle is strikingly located in landscaped grounds and wonderfully mature parklands, which sweep majestically down to the Dornoch Firth. The park around the Castle has an abundance of wildlife and activities on the estate include falconry, clay pigeon shooting, riding, canoeing and of course, golfing.

So exclusive is Skibo Castle that guests of the Carnegie Club may only stay once in 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 era, when service, luxury and style were indeed very special. The estate itself is enchantingly beautiful beyond words and is the ideal base from both a golfing and sightseeing perspective.

Boasting magnificent reception rooms, Skibo Castle offers castle and lodge accommodation with an original marble pool, gymnasium facilities and on-site golf course. Originally founded in 1898, the course was subsequently reconstructed and now provides a superb championship challenge. Original furniture and antiquities abound, providing an historical reminder of the Edwardian era. Rest assured that should you stay at Skibo Castle just once in your life, the occasion will forever remain a treasured memory!
