Enjoy the Great Scottish Outdoors this August at Ackergill Tower
Tuesday 31, May 2011
Bookings are now open for Ackergill Tower’s Glorious August Open House Party where guests can enjoy a weekend of wonderful wildlife, toe tapping ceilidhs and fabulous food.
Taking place from the 5 – 8 August this year, the open house party allows individuals the opportunity to sample Ackergill Tower’s wonderful hospitality, usually reserved for exclusive use guests.
The weekend will celebrate the long Scottish days and the great outdoors with activities including a wildlife watching boat trip across the Pentland Firth, offering guests the chance to catch a glimpse of puffins and seals, and if they’re lucky, dolphins and whales.
Rubbing shoulders with royalty is also on the cards with an afternoon trip to the Castle of Mey Highland Games, attended by the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Guests can cheer on the traditional tug of war and watch kilted Highlanders tossing the caber!
Back at the castle, the fun continues with a wild stepping ceilidh, bonfires on the beach, delicious barbecues and afternoon teas, plus sporting challenges for all to enjoy.
The weekend is priced at £895 per person for three nights’ luxury accommodation in the fifteenth century castle and highlights include homemade sloe gin in the Gun Hall, pre dinner drinks, sporting challenges, guided ranger walks, a fabulous ceilidh and pipers.
For £750, guests can stay for two nights on Friday and Saturday to take advantage of the new Flybe Wick to Edinburgh Sunday afternoon flight.
Located in Wick, the furthermost town in Scotland, the world famous fifteenth century castle boasts five miles of private secluded beach, an Opera House, Europe’s largest tree house, a fishing bothy and numerous historic features.
Ackergill Tower could not be easier to get to with regular flights to Wick from Edinburgh and Aberdeen with Flybe and Eastern Airways.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
