I always come down to Culzean during the summer with my family and we always have a great time. There is a good beach and there are great walks for dogs walkers

Visited but didn't realise that the castle shuts for the Winter. The cafe was open so we had a coffee and some cake and bought some gifts in the shop. Great views of the ocean.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Scotland - because it is connected to my family and because it is a fabulous castle. So many things to see and not enough time - good food in the café and spent a fortune...More
