Baronial Castle

Imagine a fairytale castle, hidden in 36 acres of glorious garden and woodland on the rugged and beautiful Ayrshire coast. See spectacular views across the Irish Sea to the island of Arran and the massive granite rock of Ailsa Craig. Baronial Castle has exquisite rooms, outstanding cuisine, fine wines and exceptional service.

Designed by the celebrated architect David Bryce for Mr James Hunter, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Ayrshire, the castle’s mellow sandstone battlements are topped by soaring turrets and towers, earning it a rightful place as one of the most romantic castles in Scotland.

Additional Location Information

The Castle is located near the southern end of the county of Ayrshire in South-West Scotland. This has the advantage of giving easy access to two counties - Ayrshire, and the beautiful neighbouring county of Dumfries and Galloway. The major cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within striking distance for a day trip. So too is the beautiful island of Arran, Belfast, and Northern Ireland.
The wild and beautiful countryside around the castle plays host to a wide selection of interesting places to visit and things to do. Many visitors don’t ever feel the need to venture out of the castle grounds! As well as many walks to explore, the thirty-six acres of gardens and woodlands also boast herb, fruit and flower gardens, a 150 foot Victorian Glasshouse and an all-weather tennis court and croquet lawn.  The grounds are bounded on all sides by yet more woodland and open countryside.
A five minute journey from the castle is the neighbouring Spa, you can go for a swim or a sauna, a massage or a beauty treatment.  They also have a fully equipped gym for more energetic guests.
In the nearby area there are many beaches, the closest one is in the village of Ballantrae.  Ballantrae beach is mostly a pebble beach, but still offers a couple of miles of walking with amazing views of Ireland and Ailsa Craig. Sawney Bean’s Cave is worth a visit if you don’t mind a steep cliff path.
Golf is one of the main outdoor sporting activities in the area, and there are four championship courses within an hour of the castle, these being Royal Troon, Prestwick, Western Gailes, and Turnberry.  Other local courses include Brunston Castle and Girvan to the north, and Creachmore, Dunskey and Glenluce to the south. Guests may also have access to the private Cally Course at Cally Palace in Gatehouse of Fleet, or even venture further east to Southerness.
