Welcome to South Seganwell - Culzean Castle
Our holiday accommodation is situated in and around romantic Culzean Castle, designed by Robert Adam in the 1770s on one of Scotland's most spectacular clifftop sites. This setting gives the castle magnificent views across the Firth of Clyde to the island of Arran. The 565 acres of Country Park surrounding the castle offer a stimulating variety of countryside to explore, including clifftop and woodland walks, a delightful Swan Pond, and many fascinating small buildings contemporary with the castle, such as the Gas House and the Ice House. Children, especially, will enjoy the adventure playground, the Deer Park and the rock pools on the shore.
The Segganwell Cottages were used to house estate workers and in 1891 a totalof 14 people lived here. William Kirkland, an assistant shepherd, and his wife and family of four lived in North Segganwell (two of his sons worked as gardeners on the estate); and Thomas Davidson, the house carter, and his wife and six children lived in South Segganwell.
The Segganwell Cottages provide comfortable accommodation sleeping four people in each. They are in a spectacular setting right on the beach below the Visitor Centre - an ideal location for families with young children.
An interlinking door can be unlocked for anyone booking both properties. Please ask our property staff to arrange this.
Please note - the Segganwells can only be reached by a stone staircase of over 100 steps, so are not suitable for mobility-impaired people. Guests are advised to bring a torch for use at night.
