Glenapp Castle penthouse apartment
Welcome to The Endeavour
Exclusive use of our historic penthouse apartment
Introducing The Endeavour
Combining traditional baronial style with an abundance of modern luxuries, The Endeavour is a truly welcoming home from home which sits high above the West Coast of Scotland. Spanning across 420 square metres/4,500 square feet, this elegant four bedroom penthouse is tucked away on its own floor, and is accessible through its very own private elevator. Watch the sunset and marvel at the stars whilst you take in the breathtaking views over the iconic Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Arran, and the Mull of Kintyre.
This sprawling, self-contained penthouse is home to the Westward lounge and dining room, which can seat up to 16 guests, and four stately bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The adjacent period kitchen, private chef, and butler make it perfect for feasting with friends and family. Your butler will take care of everything, from your activities and experiences to dining choices and onward travel.
Tucked away in the eaves of the castle’s roof, you’ll find a state-of-the-art media room, as well as a library and games room for pre-dinner drinks or even a cosy night in. And for those in search of a little bit of extra indulgence, the apartment even includes a private sauna and treatment room.
History and splendour
Glenapp’s rich and storied history is reflected throughout the castle. Over the last 150 years, merchants, aristocrats and philanthropists have all called this beautiful castle home, and each left their mark. The strongest of those links is that of the First Lord Inchcape, once the Chairman of P&O. Sir James Mackay would stand atop the castle and gaze out to sea, keeping an eye on his ships as they sailed past.
A stay in The Endeavour allows you to experience Glenapp like one of our former residents. Venture out onto the roof and make the most of the endless views of grounds, gardens, the untamed landscape surrounding the estate, and across the sea to Ireland.
The apartment’s collection of palatial bedrooms and bathrooms are ideal for families or groups of friends to call home for a stay on the Scottish coast. The Endeavour features four individually designed bedrooms: The Elsie Mackay, The Poppy Wyndham, The Kintyre, and The Waverley. In each, you’ll find a super king size bed, which can also be set up as twin single beds, fresh flowers, and luxurious bathrobes and slippers.
All bedrooms and bathrooms boast stunning sea views, featuring roll top baths, walk in showers, as well as a few little luxuries and extravagant amenities.
A stay in The Endeavour includes your very own private chef, who will be on hand to prepare your chosen dishes along with a changing selection of nibbles, snacks and fresh fruit. If you get peckish you will always find the kitchen stocked with an array of goodies, a selection of Suki Teas, Nespresso coffees, homemade chocolates, sweet treats and of course a selection of complimentary drinks.
You will also have a personal butler who will be on hand, discreetly, throughout your stay. They will be there to meet you on arrival, help arrange your activities and experiences, oversee all your dining desires, recommend your wines and anticipate everyone’s wishes. Your butler will ensure the best possible experience for you all during your stay.
Indulge and unwind
Whether you’re in need of a long-overdue massage or simply want to pamper yourself with a facial or manicure, our experienced beauty therapists are on hand to help. They’ll even pop in for a pre-dinner makeover.
For those who want to keep up with their fitness routine? You’ll find yoga mats, weights and hula hoops waiting for you. And, the apartment even has its own private sauna which means you can relax without leaving the apartment.
A cosy night in
With a 65” TV featuring Netflix, Amazon, Sky TV, and Disney+, the media room is the perfect place to enjoy cosy nights in. You’ll find Bluetooth speakers, Xbox with games, VR Oculus Quest 2 and the apartment has its own wifi connection. Next door, in the library and games room, you will find an eclectic offering of books, board games, chess set and wonderful comfy seating that’s perfect for sinking into with a wee dram after dinner.
In the press
Blimey there are a lot of rooms (and rooms off rooms). "There's a sauna," the youngest shouts from down the hall. “I've found a massage room," my partner says. It is like finding hidden compartments in a jewellery box. From the hall you are into a tech-free library with board games and puzzles, Enid Blyton annuals and coffee-table books; next there's a snug lounge with coombed ceilings and a gilded mirror that turns into a 65in smart TV. We lose the children to the Xbox and carry on.The Times
