Weddings

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

Exchange your vows in one of the many unique settings – from the beautiful Orangery or Camellia House with its floor-to-ceiling windows, to the dramatic Robert Adam Oval Staircase, the elegant Round Room or the Viewing Platform overlooking the Ayrshire coastline ... the choice is yours!

For your wedding breakfast, depending on guest numbers, choose between the luxurious State Dining Room or the rustic Stone Barn.

For larger celebrations, a marquee can be erected in Fountain Court, with the castle making an impressive backdrop.

Intimate or grand, weddings at Culzean are individually tailored to ensure your special day is like no other.

Accommodation
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.

Guests will have the opportunity to dine in the recently refurbished Fo’c’sle Restaurant inside the castle. The name Fo’c’sle is taken from the abbreviated form of forecastle, the term used to describe the upper deck forward of the foremast nearest the bow of the ship. The name reflects the nautical connections of the castle’s history.

Within the estate there are also five beautifully appointed self-catering cottages: Ardlochan LodgeBrewhouse FlatRoyal Artillery CottageNorth Segganwell and South Segganwell. Each cottage can sleep up to four guests and can be hired for a week or a short break.
