There is also a games room complete with snooker table.
Outside Grounds
The Walled Garden – five acres, 600 overgrown Christmas Trees removed, levelled and reseeded. This year we have planted 45 Scottish Apple Trees, 15 Conference Pears and 10 cordons of Plums.

Deer fencing has been erected along the line of the fourth wall (which was always missing as it allows the burn to take the frost away) and planted with 700 hundred hornbeam to form a new hedge and to keep the deer out.

Herbaceous Border by the house – Designed by John Hoyland ‘Mad for Joy' who has designed the beautiful garden at Glyndebourne.

Large areas of Ponticum have been cleared and replaced with a collection of Rhododendron, Azaleas and Magnolia. – a wonderful selection of species, which have been planted for the future generations and selected by the renowned expert, Kenneth Cox.

Lawns – a full time job from the first cut in March, right through to early October.

This garden is evolving and gives us so much joy.


Easy to reach and even easier to explore, Ayrshire and Arran sits on the west coast of Scotland with its wonders of island life, countryside towns and sandy shores.

We can arrange a number of activities that can take place on the Estate, including Mini Highland Games and Falconry.

Further afield, we have access to a Shooting School, where everyone can try their hand at Fly Fishing, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Rifle Shooting and Archery. A great day out.
Braehead Estate gives you the chance to sample Scottish hospitality at its best, and also to explore for yourself some of the magnificent golf courses in Ayrshire – not just some of the best in Scotland, but some of the best in the world.

The Ayrshire Coast is often referred to as a Golfing Paradise and we have many courses on our doorstep including the Championship courses of Royal Troon, Prestwick Golf Club and Trump Turnberry as well as Dundonald Links which is owned by the renowned Loch Lomond Golf Course, each presenting unique challenges of both course and climate.

Whether you are a keen spectator or player, what better way to explore the joys of golf than by staying in one of the finest baronial mansions in the west of Scotland! Blair is the perfect place to stay – luxury accommodation just a few miles away!

The Walled Garden – over the past two years this garden has been transformed from a derelict dumping site to a magnificently restored garden with a mixture of terraces, new greenhouses, formal areas and a one and a half acre Education Garden. Open all year round.

Culzean Castle and Country Park – National Trust for Scotland Woods, beaches, secret follies, play park and a cliff-top castle – a fantastic day out.

This glorious 260 ha estate was once the playground of David Kennedy, 10th Earl of Cassillis – a man who was keen to impress with his wealth and status. Opulent to the extreme, the park is planted with conifers and beech, sculpted around miles of sandy coastline dotted with caves, and finished off with a Swan Pond, an ice house, flamboyant formal gardens and fruit-filled glasshouses.

The castle itself is perched on the Ayrshire cliffs. It was designed by Robert Adam in the late 18th century and is filled to the turrets with treasures that tell the stories of the people who lived here.

Just a short ferry ride across the Firth of Clyde and you can explore either Arran or Cumbrae, or even both! Experience perfect island life, which is full of tasty food and drink, exciting outdoor activities and beautiful views.

There are numerous restaurants near to Braehead Estate only 10 minutes away.

Try heading to the coast to sample the wonderful fish available. In the house, we have a list of restaurants that we have tried and recommend.
