There is plenty to do and see on the estate without venturing far, or getting into your car.

The grounds offer excellent walking opportunities, and in 2015, to commemorate the 200th birthday of Torrisdale Castle, we created the bicentennial walk. This is a leisurely 1 mile stroll through the estate,  marked by blue arrow markers on posts.

There is now the ability to walk a section of the Kintyre Way, directly from Torrisdale, without going near a public road. From the Kintrye Way link, the entire spine of Kintyre is now easily accessible.

Torrisdale is walking distance from two beautiful beaches, both very safe for swimming and water activities. You are welcome to bring your own canoes, dinghies, or other  water sports equipment on the basis you do so at your own risk.

A must-do while you are on the estate is a visit to our gin distillery! Walking distance from all our properties, it is a great place to spend an afternoon either doing our gin tour or simply enjoying a gin and tonic in the sun.

We have a fully licenced cafe which is open 7 days a week in the summer months. Book one of our exquisite afternoon teas as a wee treat!

For a truly unique experience, why not book onto our gin school blending course. Spend a fun and educational afternoon, tasting and blending your very own bespoke spirit.
