Glenapp Castle (A Relais & Châteaux Hotel) in Ballantrae, South Ayrshire was named one of the UK's 50 best family hotels for 2024 by The Telegraph.

The newspaper said: "A fine example of 19th-century Scottish Baronial grandeur, set in extensive gardens and woodlands.

"It's more of a country house than a fortress and offers fine dining and sporting pursuits.

"A new favourite is the Hebridean sea safari, an up-close tour of the island with luxury glamping experience included. There are connecting rooms for families, plus a babysitting service. Early evening dinners are available for under-fives."

The hotel is also popular with users on Tripadvisor, scoring a perfect 5/5 (based on 597 reviews).

One visitor said: "Everything about Glenapp Castle is fantastic. Fantastic staff, fantastic food, fantastic surroundings."
