About Stonefield Castle

Stonefield Castle is a Scottish baronial manor house that is located just outside of the quaint fishing village of Tarbert, which is known to be the gateway to the beautiful Mull of Kintyre peninsula, in Argyll & Bute. The castle is set in 60 acres of picturesque woodland gardens and is surrounded by panoramic views of the Loch Fyne shores. A peaceful Highland retreat, Stonefield Castle oozes with historic charm and still maintains many of its original furnishings, including ornate ceilings and impressive marble fireplaces with roaring log fires to unwind in front of.

Our history


Stonefield Castle was built in 1837 on the site of the previous home known as Barmore. Dating back to the early 18th century, Barmore was constructed by the MacAlister family, who previously owned the nearby Tarbert Castle as tenants of the Duke of Argyll. As the castle fell into disrepair, the MacAlister laird was sued by the Duke for neglecting the property and he built Barnore in its stead. The Stonefield Castle you see today was commissioned by the grandson of Lord Stonefield, John Campbell, and was designed by Edinburgh architect William Henry Playfair, who has designed many of Edinburgh’s iconic neoclassical buildings.
