The property

Stewarton 4.1 miles.

This historic castle is set within the glorious grounds of the Rowallan Estate, just over four miles from the town of Stewarton in Scotland.

The commanding presence of the castle really catches the eye, towering over the estate with three floors to explore.

Dating back to the 12th century, the castle boasts many period and character features, but has seen a long renovation to bring the interior up-to-date.

Prepare sumptuous family feasts in the traditional kitchen or place an order to the award-winning onsite restaurant and have dinner delivered right to the door.

There is also a grand dining room where everyone can gather to enjoy a fine meal and discuss the day’s events.

Climb the traditional stone stairs to reach the first floor occupied by three beautifully presented bedrooms, including the large master bedroom with super king-size double bed and an elegant en-suite bathroom.

The fourth bedroom can be found in an annexe off the castle, complete with a king-size bed and en-suite shower room.

Entertainment can be found on the top floor in the recreational living room, housing a pool table and selection of games to keep the whole family occupied for hours.

Curl up beside the electric fire and catch up on your favourite shows or gather everyone for a family movie night.

The well-maintained estate gardens provide lovely walking opportunities, while the fabulous golf course is considered one of the finest in Ayrshire, designed by winning Ryder Cup Captain, Colin Montgomerie.

Within close reach is the fascinating Ayrshire coast, featuring the wonders of island life, countryside towns and sandy shores.

The wonderful city of Glasgow can be reached just a short drive away (approx. 25 minutes), filled with excellent shopping facilities and iconic buildings, including one of the oldest universities in the world.

Further afield is Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, offering breath-taking scenery and a plethora of outdoor opportunity.

A truly magical base for a memorable holiday, any time of year.

About the location

STEWARTON

Glasgow 21 miles; Kilmarnock 4.8 miles; Irvine 10 miles

Stewarton is a large town situated in East Ayrshire. It lies at a crossing point of the Annick Water, six miles north of Kilmarnock and within commuting distance of Glasgow and Irvine. Stewarton is known as the 'Bonnet Toun' and as early as the 1400s it was engaged in the production of this traditional Scottish headwear. The association with bonnet making was resurrected in 1932 when the long defunct Stewarton Bonnet Guild, first established in 1590, was re-established. Its main role these days is to organise the Festival Week that takes place in June each year. Elements of Stewarton's earlier industrial heritage still remains and the town continues to convey a sense of the bustle of times gone by. Stewarton boasts local shops, sports centre, restaurants and pubs including The Smugglers Inn with its busy bar and pleasant service. With the train station conveniently positioned in the centre of town there is easy access to many attractions. Head to Eglinton Country Park where there's always something different to see including the castle ruins and tournament grounds. Kilmarnock is a short distance away and has much to offer such as; Burns Mounment Centre, Dick Institute, Laigh Kirk and the Kilmarnock War Memorial. Stewarton serves as a dormitory for Glasgow, Kilmarnock and Irvine, a delightful location for a memorable getaway.
