Culzean Castle & Country Park

Opulent clifftop castle on the dramatic Ayrshire coastline
Culzean Castle seen from the beach as the sun sets. A heron stands on the foreshore. The silhouette of Ailsa Craig can also be seen in the Firth of Clyde.

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.

The Eisenhower Apartment, gifted to the US President in 1945 in recognition of his role in the Second World War, is located on the top floor of the castle. The Eisenhower comprises six tastefully appointed double bedrooms accommodating a maximum of 12 guests and includes a private drawing room overlooking the Ayrshire coastline – all accessed using the original 1920s elevator.

Within the estate there are also eight beautifully appointed self-catering cottages: Ardlochan Lodge, Brewhouse Flat, Clocktower, Royal Artillery Cottage, Garden House, North Firbank, North Segganwell and South Segganwell. Each cottage can be hired for a week or a short break.

For further information on accommodation, please contact our events co-ordinators. They’ll be delighted to discuss your requirements in more detail, arrange a visit to the castle and help plan your event.
