Exclusive Use: Blair is only available on an Exclusive Use basis and is one of the most spectacular Baronial Mansion houses in Ayrshire. It offers luxurious accommodation, high quality service and delicious food cooked by our Executive Chef.
History: The origins of this ancient castle date back to c.1105 with the construction of a basic Norman Tower; the remains of which can still be seen in The Guard Room. In the 12th century, King William the Lion granted The Barony of Blair and its associated lands to Jean Francois, a knight of Norman descent. Since then Blair has become inextricably woven with Scottish history and has evolved from the first rudimentary castellated Tower into the grand, yet comfortable family home that stands there today. With a second tower added in 1203 and major additions in 1668 and in the 1800s, the Castle is reputed to be the oldest continually inhabited Mansion house in Scotland.
