Glenapp Castle

Glenapp Castle is located a mile (1.5 km) south of the settlement of Ballantrae in South Ayrshire Council Area. Built in 1870 by David Bryce for James Hunter, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Ayrshire, the castle was purchased in 1917 by James Lyle Mackay, 1st Earl of Inchcape (1852 - 1932). His descendants owned the castle until 1984. Since 1994 it has been used as a country house hotel. The family still owns the surrounding estate.
