Culzean Castle and the Tower of Hallbar: Two Scottish Castle Hotels Worth Checking Out

June 1, 2015

Here are two more Scottish castle hotels worth checking out!

1. Culzean Castle

Found in Ayrshire, this castle is great for both corporate events and wedding ceremonies. It originally belonged to the Kennedys, descendants of Robert the Bruce. It was during David Kennedy’s – the 10th Earl of Cassillis’s – time, however, that a castle was built and designed to showcase the family’s wealth and legacy.

Guest comments on Culzean Castle:

“Our stay at the castle was beyond anything we could have hoped for! The staff so accommodating we couldn’t have had a more magical time! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.”
– Chrissy Bradburn

“Excellent, inspiring location. Wonderful amazing castle and grounds. We were looked after incredibly well for our 16th wedding anniversary. The surprise at finding that we were the only people staying for the night was delightful! Wonderful food, hospitality second to none.”
– Joyce Hunt
