My family was a bit museum and city-fatigued from touring London, Edinburgh and Glasgow ... so we hired a driver and toured an hour from Glasgow the the amazing work of art known as Culzean Castle. The first hint is at the welcome center where you see a bit of the castle on the cliff up the shore. You then... More

Amazing experience, highly recommend!! Rooms are in an "apartment" on second floor of the castle. VERY private with a beautiful and large separate parlor for drinks, tea and sitting with guests staying overnight. Small den with television and good wi fi for guests to share. Rooms very large with period furniture. Dinner was excellent, top restaurant quality. Staff was incredible... More

My brother and I booked one night in the Kennedy Room in the Eisenhower tower and it was absolutely an awesome experience. We arrived after 5 because we drove from Melrose Abbey and Stephanie greeted us and had saved our "tea" (we were starving and opted to do this as opposed to driving back thru the grounds to the next...

Being an avid gardener I absolutely loved touring the grounds and gardens here. The borders were stunning in the walled garden and the Castle was magnificent...especially the view over the water. We had lunch in the café and the soup was very tasty. Nice gift shop and walkways to explore. Toured the interior and enjoyed talking to the knowledgeable guides.... More

We booked the Eisenhower apartment with 5 other couples for my 40th birthday celebrations. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the whole experience was magical. The staff were attentive when needed but were mostly invisible, it was like having the castle to ourselves. Best time ever!

I've been visiting Culzean Castle for many years now since my first trip in primary school, & i still find places or interesting things i never found on a previous trip, Although i must admit my days of exploring the smugglers caves, or taking the one of the many long walks have kinda been pushed aside for more relaxing things...

What a lovely place to visit. Views to the isle of Arran is wonderful. Lots of lovely walks and the eatery serves wholesome food. A lovely place to take your dog. Unfortunately Lethe castle was closed, but I guess they do not get many visiters during the week in winter. May national trust property, it is really well looked after.

I proposed to my wife at the castle, we got married there, returned for our tenth anniversary, but this was the first time we had taken our children. We had a fabulous... More

We had a visit to the castle, after paying £15 each to get in the whole experience was very disappointing, There was no wow factor it just looked a very tired old building with lots of old upkept furniture( I do realise this is an old building etc) but no splendour or lavish items you would expect from a castle...
