Ackergill Tower is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"A private castle on the edge of a cliff top – what’s not to love? As you’d imagine, this A-list getaway has ah-maze-ing views of windswept beaches on one side and rugged countryside on the other. Book a baronial room for sea views or, if you want to impress or simply be impressed, a deluxe castle room, complete with four-poster and jaw-dropping scenery. Drinks at the new Smuggler’s Saloon are a treat particularly when accompanied by the local haddock served in batter from the bar. For something more sophisticated dine beneath crystal chandeliers and pretend you’re in Harry Potter in the Grand Hall, where sommeliers will talk you through the wines to accompany dishes like roast guinea fowl with parsnip puree and pancetta."
