BLAIRQUHAN CASTLE GUEST ROOMS
Each guest room has been individually designed in a sumptuous, yet elegant fashion that will make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive. You have the choice between one of the five grand rooms which have original two or four-poster beds to welcome you, or the ten other deluxe bedrooms that make up our accommodation here at Blairquhan Castle. Whichever you choose, you will not be disappointed.
Every one of the bedrooms has tall sash windows that open up to stunning views of the surrounding grounds and the Ayrshire countryside beyond. Beautifully spacious, each room has either a super king or king size bed for you to fall into at the end of long day. Be warned though, our bed linen is so luxurious that you may struggle to get up at all the following morning!
The rest of the interior is equally impressive, with period furniture sitting side-by-side with modern bathrooms that have been installed with great attention to detail. Thick, fluffy towels are waiting to swaddle you after you have pampered yourself with the L'Occitane toiletries that are found in every bathroom.
Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the castle should you wish to not be completely shut off from the outside world. There are, however, tea and coffee making facilities in every room should you decide that the world can wait just a little while longer.
Situated inside the Blairquhan estate are eight self-catering cottages which are available for bookings all year round. Each with their own individual name, these cottages are the perfect place to spend a few days winding down from the rigours of the modern world. Tranquil and secluded, they offer you the opportunity to get away from it all, allowing you the indulgence of being surrounded by the beautiful Ayrshire countryside.
Each cottage comes complete with wonderfully luxurious towels and bed linen. Oil-fired central heating will keep you warm and cosy regardless of what the weather may be doing outside and your electricity usage is included in the booking price too. All cottages come with the necessary amenities that you would expect from a self-catering accommodation, so you can step straight in and make yourself at home.
Once you are settled in you are free to explore the fabulous grounds here at Blairquhan. Many miles of woodland walks are yours to discover, as well as a beautiful stretch of the River Girvan just north of the castle. We even have a Giant Redwood tree on the estate that is believed to have been grown from a seed which was brought to Scotland from America by the SS Great Britain in the 19th century!
