Culzean Country Park boasts no less than five kilometres of magnificent coastline. From the sand dunes at the south end of the park to the rugged rocky shoreline, pitted with rock pools, caves and rock arches, the shore and beaches of sand and shingle stretch all the way to Croy Shore, the northern boundary of the park.

Culzean is in the heart of Burns country, a central base for visiting the poet's haunts. There are also other National Trust for Scotland properties within easy driving distance of the Castle.

Activities such as horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, fishing and sailing can be arranged for guests. Please ask if there are any other activities that might be of interest.
