Blairquhan Castle


Prices from £5,000 per night
Sleeps 30 – 78 people

This elegant baronial Scottish castle has been beautifully restored to offer truly indulgent accommodation, set in 200 acres of idyllic landscaped parkland in rural Ayrshire, yet less than an hour from Glasgow. The interior is equally as beautiful, a magnificent blend of classical elegance and contemporary touches, flooded with natural light and full of character and history. Slumber in lavish bedroom suites, enjoy a feast fit for a king then relax in opulent surroundings by the roaring log fire with a glass of Scotland’s finest whisky in hand. Parties of 30 can be accommodated in style in 15 light and elegant bedrooms, some with four-poster beds, and a number of cottages in the estate (within easy walking distance to the Castle) can accommodate a further 48 guests. For the more energetic, a plethora of outdoor activities can be arranged in the Castle’s 200 acre estate. Blairquhan Castle offers an authentic experience of life in an historic Scottish castle, whether for a special celebration, reunion, corporate event, wedding, or even just a weekend getaway with friends.

The 5* rated Blairquhan Castle is a picturesque 200-acre Scottish country estate in the heart of Burns country, near Maybole in Ayrshire. The baronial castle was built in 1346 and has seldom changed hands, having been home to just four families throughout its history. The original castle fell into disrepair over the years and it was substantially rebuilt in the 19th century to a design by the celebrated Scottish architect, William Burn.
