Culzean Castle

Formerly a rather dull fortified tower house, Culzean (pronounced “Cullane”) was transformed by the architect Robert Adam into a mansion of sumptuous proportions and elegance. The work began in 1777 and lasted almost 20 years, the Kennedy family sparing little expense in the decoration and craftsmanship of their clifftop home. Culzean – a masterpiece in a land full of magnificent castles – was gifted to the nation and fully restored in the 1970s. Its grounds became Scotland’s first public country park in 1969.prac_infoMaybole • 0844 493 2148www.nts.org.uk • Apr–Oct: 10:30am–5pm daily; Nov–Mar: shops & restaurant only, 11am–4pm Thu–Sun • ...
