Culzean Castle

In Ayrshire the architectural glories of Culzean Castle and ‘the most beautiful Country Park in Britain’ are a magnet few can resist. It is impossible to convey the scale and the scope of the house and the country park. The Castle dates from the 12th Century but was rebuilt by Robert Adam in 1775, a time of soaring ambition, its grandeur is almost out of place in this exposed cliff top position. It was designed for entertaining, (the oval staircase is magnificent) and it was a favourite haunt of President Eisenhower.
