Rising majestically from its clifftop location looking out towards the Isle of Arran, Culzean is an iconic Scottish castle set in a large country park.

Redesigned as a fashionable country retreat for the 10th Earl of Cassillis by Scottish architect Robert Adam in the 18th century, the castle’s elegant rooms and exquisite Georgian interiors offer the ultimate setting for events of all shapes and sizes.

The large country park incorporates extensive gardens, woodland, beaches and secret follies – and offers the perfect backdrop for outdoor events and festivals.
