Toured Culzean Castle and grounds as part of a Rabbie's tour group. The castle itself was lovely and a fascinating historical monument. We had to wait a bit for the history film as staff were removing items from the store room behind the cinema, but the restaurant was amazing and the food was fresh and well worth it. The staff...

Culzean Castle is our favourite! It has beautiful view, fantastic gardens that easy to walk, cafeteria is very friendly and what my daughter most likes the kids park built from wood and it's massive! Even an adult will have a great experience there, castle itself is in great condition, views from the castle are spectacular! I wish I could go... More

The castle and the surrounding area is beautiful. The castle sits on a cliff above the sea and the view on a sunny day is very nice. The area and the interior of the castle is very well kept and you can spend some hours without a problem. This a must visit if you are in this part of Scotland.... More

The only disappointment for me is the Cafe. We wanted some lunch before heading into the castle. We had the soup as... More

Saw this on line and all the comments are true. It is a vast site with plenty to do for the whole family. If you have children there is an amazing play park. However if like us it is just adults the castle and the grounds are superb. We spent nearly 5 hours there and could have spent more! Lovely... More

We had a lovely afternoon at Culzean Castle. We need to go back to see it all. Recommend the cliff top walk for great views of port Carrick beach.

So good we visited twice in a week. We are Welsh national trust members but getting in for free using are cards on Scotland was great. Such a great site. One of the best and amazing play park. A must for any Ayr visitor. Would travel the hour to visit.
