Culzean Castle and Country Park
With a dramatic clifftop setting, Robert Adam architecture, fascinating history & beautiful surrounds, Culzean Castle and Country Park is one of Scotland’s best days out.
This glorious 260ha estate was once the playground of David Kennedy, 10th Earl of Cassillis. – A man who was keen to impress with his wealth and status.
Opulent to the extreme, the park is planted with conifers and beech.
Sculpted around miles of sandy coastline dotted with caves. Finished off with a Swan Pond, an ice house and flamboyant formal gardens as well as fruit-filled glasshouses.
The castle itself is perched on the Ayrshire cliffs, incorporating everything the Earl could wish for in his country home.
It was designed by Robert Adam in the late 18th century and is filled to the turrets with treasures that tell the stories of the people who lived here.
