An historic country house dating back to the 14th Century set in over 2000 acres of gardens, parkland and Estate in the heart of rural Ayrshire, on the west coast of Scotland. The interiors of the house are refined and elegant with many family treasures including a wealth of antiques and art and enjoyed by shooting parties, corporate think tanks as well as for golfing tours. Some of the world’s best-rated courses are within a short distance including Troon, Prestwick, Western Gailes, Turnberry as well as Dundonald Links (sister course of Loch Lomond), host of the Scottish Open and Ladies Scottish Open.
The House is also ideal for private parties and family reunions. With several large reception rooms, two dining rooms seating up to 30 guests, the house creates the perfect setting for a “house party”. The friendly household staff look after the party and the excellent French Chef applies his classical skills with traditional British dishes using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients and especially those native to Scotland. The Estate has two herds of Jersey cows producing delicious dairy produce.
The house is also famed for its formal 10 acre gardens which have featured in many titles and includes a traditional walled garden, 90m long herbaceous border, as well as rock and water gardens. Adjoining the house is a croquet lawn with dining terrace and wood-burning pizza oven.
Activities: Include fishing, clay-pigeon shooting, tennis, cycling, billiards and croquet. The shooting season runs from 1 October to the January and the Estate provides a good choice of drives to allow parties to shoot over 2 days.
