Welcome to Kelburn Castle and Estate. One of Scotland's most beautiful woodlands combined with one of its most interesting castles.
Kelburn Castle and Estate is open daily from Easter to October.
One of Kelburn’s most popular attraction for the kids is the Secret Forest: a fairy tale inspired maze with a witch’s cottage, a giant’s castle, and much more! There’s also the Adventure Course and Saloon play areas, complete with wooden walkways, stepping stones, tunnels, swings and scramble net.
Kelburn’s stunning woodland glen has a number of twisted trails and paths for exploring, with plenty of creative surprises to see along the way. Trek to the top of the glen and you’ll be rewarded with incredible views across the Firth of the Clyde and over to the Isle of Arran.
The Waterfall Pool, set in a spectacular sandstone grotto is just 250 yards from the colourful castle.
Kelburn’s castle was painted in 2007 and is now recognised as one of the world’s top 10 examples of street art by author and designer Tristan Manco – on a par with Banksy’s work in Los Angeles and the Favela Morro Da Providencia in Rio de Janeiro.
The estate runs events all through the year, so keep an eye on their website and social media for updates.
You can even make a weekend of it and glamp at Kelburn in their stunning hillside yurts or bring your own tent and pitch up!
Entry is free to the grounds, glen and the Saloon and Adventure Course play areas. Parking is charged at £5 per car. Entry to the Secret Forest is £3pp.
