  • "Lodge was lovely, comfortable."

    Plenty of space for 4 adults. The main bathroom would benefit from an upgrade, especially the bath, which creaked when stood having a shower. but was clean.

  • "We had a great time at Brunston Castle lodges, the lodge was amazing, very clean,tidy and cosy,lot of space and very comfortable, the booking, checking in and communication was very good and professional."

    We personally did not use dishwasher as we don't have at home. There was no washing machine but this was not an issue. Thank you for lovely, great lodge at Brunston Castle, we will definitely be making a return in the future.

  • "The check in/out times given by Sykes differ from the receptions book in/out times."

    Arrived at 15:20 as Sykes listed book in time at 15:00 was refused entry till 16:00. Not good when you’ve travelled 300 miles! Also Sykes say contact owner for key details, actually it is run by Hoseasons who require you to contact them. This caused a bit of confusion. I would suggest Sykes makes it known when booking this is a Hoseasons Complex, there was no mention of the site facilities and no mention of whether as a private guest we could use them, and given the attitude of reception on our arrival, I thought discretion was best utilised by not engaging with them during our stay,

The property

Brunston Castle is a superb detached lodge in Dailly, South Ayrshire.

Set over a single storey and sleeping up to six guests, Brunston Castle is well-situated for exploring this scenic part of Scotland, within easy reach of Galloway Forest Park and the Ayrshire coast.

As you make your way through the lodge park and up to the property, there is a well-kept front lawn and a private driveway for one car.

Stepping into the property, there is space to hang coats before exploring the open-plan living space.

There is a kitchen area with everything you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday, so rustle up an evening meal and gather round the spacious wooden dining table to enjoy.

Alternatively, pick a spot on the sofa after a long day and rest as you watch your favourite shows or head out onto the enclosed decking where you can enjoy a bottle of wine as you watch the sun go down.

When the evening draws to a close, head to your chosen bedroom; there are two twin rooms, each with a sweet splash of yellow throughout and great storage space for those who want to make themselves feel at home.

There is also a double room, which is a lovely private space after a long day, with it's own en-suite WC.

To finish the property, there is a bathroom with a lush spa bath, where you can enjoy a relaxing soak or take a shower to freshen up before another exciting day in Scotland.

Brunston Castle is just a short walk away from the shop, pub and café that Dailly village has to offer, whilst the ruins of the Dalquharran Castle stand on a hill overlooking the village.

Drive towards the west coast, where you can find a lovely shoreside golf course and a sandy beach at Girvan, as well as the breath-taking 15th century Culzean Castle, which is surrounded by a magnificent deer park.

Alternatively, drive a short distance in the opposite direction to explore the scenic Galloway Forest Park, where you can find lots of fishing spots and walking and cycling trails amongst live deer, or enjoy a picnic at the stunning Stinchar Bridge waterfall.

Also in driving distance is the town of Ayr, which is home to the historical Wallace Tower and Miller's Folly, a popular racecourse with live events, and a sandy beach, which is surrounded by shops, bars, eateries and an entertainment centre.

For a memorable trip to this gorgeous part of Scotland, choose Brunston Castle.

About the location


Ayr 16 miles.

Located on the Water of Girvan in South Ayrshire, Dailly, or ‘New Dailly’ to distinguish it from ‘Old Dailly’, was developed in the mid 18th-century as a coal mining village. The ruins of the Robert Adam-designed Dalquharran Castle stand on a hill overlooking the village. The ruined church at Old Dailly dates from pre-Reformation times, and houses the mysterious Blue Stones; thought to be Charter Stones, ancient symbols granted to an area in place of a written charter, several legends have grown up around them. One holds they were Sanctuary Stones and would protect anyone sitting against them, and another belief is that their mystical powers would bring good fortune to anyone touching them. The village of Dailly today has a pub, shop and post office and the series of Dailly Trails make for ideal walking, forming part of the Carrick Way. Dailly’s proximity to the Ayrshire coast makes it an ideal venue for exploring the many golf courses, beaches and castles, including spectacular Culzean Castle, and with the Galloway Forest Park nearby and its many walks and cycle rides, this is a great location to use as a base for touring.
