About Culzean Castle
Monumental, romantic and splendid, Culzean Castle was designed by Robert Adam in the 1770s on one of Scotland's most dramatic clifftop sites. The Armoury, the Library, the famous crimson oval staircase; all are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

228 hectares (565 acres) of Country Park surrounding the castle offer a variety of countryside to explore, including clifftop and woodland walks.

About the area
Maybole is the closest town, an ancient village established in the 12th century. As well as a Victorian town hall and a 17th century castle, the High Street has a range of shops and amenities.

Ayrshire is famous for its golf courses including Turnberry, Royal Troon and Old Prestwick. Fishing, cycling, horse riding and clay shooting are also available nearby.

Things to do

  • Spend a day losing yourself in Culzean's massive grounds. Spot the Ice House, the Swan Pond, visit the Deer Park and adopt a deer, or explore the rock pools on the beach.

  • Alloway is only a short drive away. Learn about Scotland's National Bard at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, then follow in the footsteps of Tam O'Shanter and visit Alloway's 'auld haunted kirk'.

  • There's not much left to see, but the nearby clifftop ruin of Turnberry Castle is steeped in medieval history. It's said Robert the Bruce's mother held his father captive here until he agreed to marry her, and the castle is widely held as King Robert's birthplace. The ruin is old and unstable; take great care if exploring.


Getting there
Culzean is 12 miles south of Ayr, 4 miles west of Maybole.

... Our guests said...
"... a beautiful property in a beautiful setting...As my wife wrote in the visitors book, it is like a suburban oasis. Thank you so much." (Mr.Knowles, Wallasey)

About Holmwood House
James Couper, a local paper manufacturer commissioned the building of Holmwood House in 1857. By 1858 it was complete, designed by Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and widely thought to be his finest domestic work.

Richly ornamented with neo-classical motifs and acres of surrounding greenery, the house is a symbol of how mercantile wealth grew to compete with aristocratic inheritance during this fascinating period in history.

About the area
Glasgow is a vibrant cultural hub, home to world-class art exhibitions, pioneering theatre practitioners and Scotland's national ballet company.

Holmwood is ten minutes away from Glasgow city centre by train, with a walk of ten minutes to the station.

Things to do

  • Cook up a storm with fresh vegetables purchased from Holmwood's own vegetable garden.

  • Spend a night at the theatre. The Citizens Theatre offers traditionally staged plays, the Arches has great atmosphere and an avant garde programme, while the Tramway is a fantastic contemporary space created from an old tram shed.

  • Visit the Tenement House to see a different side of Glasgow life, from the early 20th century. This four room house was lived in by independent woman, Miss Agnes Toward for over 50 years.


Getting there
Holmwood is on Netherlee Road, Cathcart, Glasgow and is 4 miles south of the city centre. Netherlee Road is off Clarkston Road (B767). The nearest station is Cathcart, 1 mile away.
