Knock House – Benmore Estate, Isle of Mull
By | 1 month ago
At the heart of the 32,000 acre Benmore Estate on the enthralling Isle of Mull sits Knock House, a classic Scottish country house that has everything you need for an unforgettable stay in the Inner Hebrides. The 12-bedroom house, sleeping up to 20, was originally a gift from the Duke of Argyll to his new wife, Queen Victoria’s fourth daughter Princess Louise – the Duke extensively expanded the existing structure on the site. Today, it remains full of historic charm and unique character, alongside all the modern amenities you need for a comfortable stay. At the heart of the house is its wood-panelled ceilidh hall; there’s also a dining room seating up to 20, a billiard room, and wine cellar stocked with Berry Bros. & Rudd’s finest bottles. Relax with a glass of fine Scottish whisky in front of the roaring fire, or drink in the views of the rugged emerald hills. On the wider estate visitors can enjoy all kinds of field sports – deer stalking, clay pigeon shooting and fishing – as well as hill walking, pony trekking and golf. The ultimate escape, for people who really want that unique country house experience.
