Culzean Castle And Country Parke Castle

Contents

This Italian castle has also a Roman viaduct and Ruined Arch to add up to its style set atop a spectacular clifftop.

The castle has been marvelously restored by the Trust. It contains a rich collection of paintings and furniture, and a display of weapons in the Armoury. The Circular Saloon has a superb panoramic view over the Firth of Clyde and the beautiful Oval Staircase is Robert Adams final masterpiece of interior design.

In 1945 the top floor was gifted away to General Eisenhower as a token of Scotlands recognition of his role during World War II. His apartment now houses a small country house hotel. The Georgian Kitchen gives a glimpse of life below stairs 200 years ago.

Educational programmes and tours are available. Through the Clocktower Courtyard, a coach-house and stables have been converted into the Castle Shop and Old Stables Coffee House.

The Country Park

Set up in 1969, this is the first country park of Scotland and is a treasure trove of natural and historical information. The woodland would take the visitor to the Deer Park, along the Cliff Walk or to the many restored estate buildings, such as the Ruined Arch and Viaduct, beautiful Camellia House and unique Pagoda. Garden areas include the terraced Fountain Court and the Walled Garden with its redesigned pleasure garden and impressive reconstructed Victorian Vinery.

The Visitor Centre, includes the Home Farm Restaurant, the Home Farm Shop, the Country Park Shop and Plant Centre. The new auditorium and exhibition at the Visitor Centre explain the history of Culzean and the Trusts conservation work. The Gas House, Ice House and Swan Pond are the other attractions.
