Ardtornish Estate spreads out around Loch Aline, a huge, wooded, U-shaped bay, a natural haven. Wherever you go, high in the hills or down at sea level, there are streams and lochs. The water in the streams is the colour of peaty whisky.

Sustainable development is our guiding principle at Ardtornish.
We keep a close eye on our environmental footprint, and like to think that with our deep peat soils, thousands of acres of woodlands, and low-carbon power and heat sources, we sequester (i.e. lock away) a large amount of atmospheric carbon.
Ardtornish Estate has its own home farm, run in two separate units.
Ardtornish farm based at Acharn has 1,300 hill sheep (mainly blackface but with some Cheviot crosses), and about 180 hill cows. Inninmore farm is smaller, based at Old Ardtornish. It is farmed organically, with 20 cows and 700 sheep.
Electricity generated using hydropower is known as hydroelectricity
We use the enormous amount of rain that falls on Ardtornish to produce hydroelectricity. The rain fills our rivers & reservoirs & the water travelling under pressure down our pipelines turns specially designed turbines.
We are proud to have guests from all over the world, here are just what a few of them say about their stay at Ardtornish Estate.
“This a magical place to do as much or as little as your heart, mind, body & spirit are needing. The people are wonderful, kind, caring & fun. For me it was a trip that I’d dreamed of for my whole life. I have now, in my 50th year, walked where my ancestors walked, experienced a culture that I was born from & most importantly….healed my heart & my spirit.”
“I went to Ardtornish for the first time (of many) when I was six years old. It is the one of the most beautiful and magical places I’ve ever been.”
