Built in 1837, Stonefield Castle is a fine example of Scottish baronial architecture and still retains much of its original furnishings, wood panelling, ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces. Beyond its interior splendor, the castle is set in 60 acres of woodland gardens, lapped by the shores of Loch Fyne. It is based just two miles from the idyllic fishing village of Tarbert, one of the most attractive villages on the Mull of Kintyre peninsula. The hotel offers 32 individually and tastefully decorated en suite bedrooms, with views over the gardens and Loch Fyne.
There are 32 en-suite Guestrooms at Stonefield Castle, many of which overlook the spectacular scenery of Loch Fyne.

The Village of Tarbert
On The Map: Tarbert is located on Loch Fyne in the Argyll region of Scotland, at the gateway to the beautiful peninsula of Kinryre.
Backed by rugged hills and fronting on to an attractive natural harbour, Tarbert is still home to a working fishing fleet and is an increasingly popular destination for the yachting fraternity. This is particularly so in May during the heats for Scottish Series which are staged in Loch Fyne. The annual seafood festival in July also drawssignificant crowds. The village is also an important travel hub for the region, providing access to no fewer than four ferry terminals. Tarbert’s harbour front is very picturesque, and best appreciated from Robert the Bruce’s 14th century castle above the town to the south. Only the ivy-strewn ruins of the keep remain, though the view from the overgrown rubble makes the stroll up here very worthwhile. There are steps up to the castle and a red waymarked path from the harbour front. Longer walks are also marked out, including a hike all the way over to Skipness.
