18th-century Culzean Castle, Robert Adam’s final masterpiece, is one of the National Trust for Scotland’s finest properties. Perched on a rocky promontory with superb panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde, the Castle is situated amidst approximately 600 acres of woodland and formal gardens. Attractions include an enchanting Victorian walled garden with newly restored vinery, wildlife garden, herb garden, children’s adventure playground, swan pond, deer park, camellia house and gas house exhibition. Whilst the Castle is closed for part of the year, the country park and walled garden is open all year. Check for opening times.
