Skibo Castle

Skibo Castle is home to one of the world’s most prestigious private clubs.


In a secluded corner of the Northern Highlands lies Skibo Castle, Scotland's best kept secret. Industrialist Andrew Carnegie, one of history's greatest philanthropists, came to Skibo in 1898 and transformed the estate into what he rightly termed 'Heaven on Earth'.
