Chateau overview - owner's description

Ayrshire Castle, Scotland's most exclusive holiday home, has lived several lives since its construction in the 15th century as a wedding gift for Princess Mary, daughter of James II of Scotland. Once a court and prison, now it is restored as luxurious accommodations for 12-14 guests.

An easy walk from West Kilbride and its craft studios and galleries, this castle to rent has excellent views of the Firth of Clyde and the Isle of Arran from its roof. Golf at several nearby world-famous courses, enjoy a walk on the Ayrshire coastal shoreline or fish in several rivers and lochs. Bookish guests will love exploring Scotland's literary past in the birthplace of the poet Robert Burns.

The castle itself weds the medieval to the contemporary. The bedrooms feature wood-burning stoves and marvellous four-poster hand carved beds with velvet drapes. However, the formal great hall has a large TV and an ipod dock tucked behind a tapestry, and underfloor heating keeps guests comfortable in the cooler months. Each floor has its own bathroom, including a unique stone bath.

Near the A78, Ayrshire Castle is 20-25 miles from Glasgow Prestwick and Glasgow Airports and 70 miles from Edinburgh Airport.
