HOSPITALITY IS THE CORNERSTONE OF THE CLUB'S ETHOS
Belonging to The Carnegie Club offers members access not only to one of the world's most extraordinary and luxurious residential clubs, but also the opportunity to experience that elusive Skibo je ne sais quoi each and every time they visit.
Begin your day as the sound of our resident bagpiper wakes you from your slumber. Sate your appetite with a wonderful breakfast before heading out for a flawless round on the Carnegie Links or perhaps a spot of fishing before lunch. Spend the afternoon beating your personal best at the shooting range or enjoying a canter around the estate on a beautiful chestnut mare. Take afternoon tea in the Drawing Room followed by a swim and a spa treatment before a refreshing aperitif, dinner and a sing-song around the piano that goes on into the early hours.
They say that the little touches make all the difference, and members of The Carnegie Club know this all too well. From the welcome tot at the door when you arrive to the cuddly hottie placed in your bed during turn-down service, from remembering your favourite drink to knowing how you like your eggs cooked in the morning, the staff at Skibo work to make every stay feel as special as it was your first visit.
There are 21 guest rooms within the castle, each with its own distinct charm: some have four-poster beds, some original Edwardian fixtures and fittings including tiling and roll-top baths, others have balconies and one even has a private library tucked away up a tower.
For those travelling with children under 16, a party of friends, or members who prefer the privacy of their own house, there are 13 beautifully appointed lodges dotted around the grounds. Several of the estate's buildings have been converted to accommodation by the club and retain many of their original features, each with a character of its own and, depending on the lodge, guests might enjoy large open fires, panoramic views of the Dornoch Firth from their private sun terrace or a game of croquet on their lawn.
From the moment you enter the castle's Great Hall it is clear that elegant, rather than opulent, is the style and Edwardian house party is the atmosphere. Membership of The Carnegie Club provides more than world-class hospitality: it offers you a home in the Highlands that you can return to again and again.
