Open to the public and well worth a visit, this well-maintained castle and grounds show-off how the original residents and staff (late 1700a) lived and worked. Culzean Castle (pronounced Cullain) is easily accessible from the A78 coastal highway in SW Scotland. Former home of the Chief of the Clan Kennedy, now owned by the National Trust for Scotland.

Visited here with my family. The Castle was still closed as it is the winter season and it does not open till April. We visited the cafe which had lovely soup and homemade scones and went on to visit the Children's playpark which is fantastic. The design was totally in keeping with the castle with its turrets and surrounded in... More

Fantastic walk only to find out despite the adverts outside the swan pond coffee shop...It was closed! Lots of families with picnics...well done. But at a time of local holidays and English half terms shouldn't we be open?!?! Come on Scotland stop being... More

Culzean has recently upgraded it's playpark. It's a brilliant day out & is very child friendly. We had a great day with my 20 month old granddaughter.

As national trust members, we visit here for free (other than membership!). We visit at least one a month and are never bored. The place is fantastic! The castle itself is lovely to wander around on rainy days and if you have younger children, they will enjoy the challenge of finding my the lego figures hidden around. The grounds are... More

We got married here about 14 years ago so this place will always be close to our hearts. Can't say a bad thing about it. LOVE this place especially this time of year when you see so much more with the leaves off the trees. 😙

If you have a National Trust card then you will get the full use of it at Culzean Castle, there's a variety of things happen throughout the year from Easter egg hunts to Jousting. Endless paths to search, endless rock pools to fish in, and pets are welcome too.
