The Impressive 15th Century Coastal Tower is currently For Sale for offers over £3.9million.

A 15th century construction, Ackergill Tower has undergone some major refurbishment in the intervening years. Extended in the 19th century with the interiors now brought up to pace with modern luxury while remaining in touch with it’s heritage.

Ackergill Tower is believed to date from 1475 and has an interesting history.
Famous 19th century Scottish Architect David Bryce is the man responsible for the vast extension to the original build. The Tower was further renovated in the 1980's to re-introduce the grandeur that had begun to slip over the previous decades.

The current owners of Ackergill Tower (purchased 2009) added to the grandeur and brought the hotel into the 21st century with the inclusion of conference and function space for up to 200 guests.

This allows the tower to operate as a luxury hotel and an exclusive use wedding and conferencing event. In addition there is the prospect of self catering accommodation dotted across the Ackergill Estate.
