Robert Adam’s magnificent cliff-top castle was built for David Kennedy, the 10th Earl of Cassillis, to entertain his friends in style. Today Culzean can be yours for a summer’s evening to entertain your friends in 18th-century elegance with superb views across the sea to the mountains of Arran.

From April to October, the castle is available for private hire from 4.30 pm. In winter, it can be available for functions throughout the day. Some rooms in the castle and other buildings around Culzean’s beautiful grounds can be hired at any time for a more self-contained event and at a more modest fee than that for the whole castle. The charges reflect the Trust’s primary purpose of conserving Culzean for people’s enjoyment, now and into the future.
