Visit the Castle to admire the period objects, take in the panoramic view of the Clyde from the Round Drawing Room and check out one of the world’s largest collections of swords and pistols in the Armoury. Outdoors there are around 40 other quirky historical buildings and follies hidden throughout the estate as well as three miles of shoreline to explore, formal gardens and a woodland trail to the Swan Pond.

Culzean is the perfect place for a day out for all the family – whether you're a keen walker, a gardener, interested in architecture or happy just to soak up some history.

Robert Adam's 18th-century masterpiece – a real 'castle in the air' – is perched on a cliff high above the crashing waves of the Firth of Clyde. The Castle itself boasts a spectacular Oval Staircase, the impressive Armoury and the Circular Saloon, with its panoramic views over the Clyde. The extensive grounds encompass Scotland's first country park where you can explore the deer park, swan pond, miles of woodland walks and adventure playground.
