Blair Estate

Exclusive Use

Blair House, Blair Estate, Dalry, Ayrshire, KA24 4ER

    Blair with its magnificent 900 yr old history, sits within 250 acres of garden and parkland. Just 20mins from Glasgow Airport and recently renovated, it is the perfect location for a house party, wedding, corporate retreat or golf holiday.

    Today, Blair combines its remarkable history with the comfort of a family home which has been recently renovated to an exceptional standard, whilst retaining its unique character.  We can accommodate up to thirty six guests in our eighteen beautifully appointed bedrooms which have recently undergone a major renovation. 

     

    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
