Torrisdale Castle Estate has been in the ownership of the Macalister Hall family since 1872 and over the years has benefited from innovative diversification. A successful self-catering business began in the early 1980s, started by the current laird’s parents, Donald and Mary Macalister Hall. This business continues to thrive today in the hands of Niall and Emma. Niall has further developed the estate by installing a biomass boiler which efficiently heats the 200 year old castle using estate wood and has installed a 99kw hydro-electric scheme which has significantly boosted the estate’s income.

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery marked the start of another exciting new chapter in Torrisdale’s diverse history.
