The Eisenhower Apartment, Scotland
|Culzean Castle, Maybole, Ayrshire, Scotland, UNITED KINGDOM.|
Description: The Eisenhower ApartmentOn a cliff edge overlooking the Firth of Clyde about 15 miles south of Ayr in South West Scotland, Culzean was originally a rambling fortified L-shaped tower house. It was built by the Kennedy family in the late 1500's. 200 years later the new owner set about repairing and making renovations to make the castle more comfortable.
An architect was commissioned to transform Culzean from a dowdy fortress to a grand, romantic and fashionable castle. Like a storybook castle, this fantastic example of genius stands dramatically on a cliff with superb views across the sea to the mountains of the Island of Arran. Pronounced "Cullane" this is probably the finest Georgian castle in Scotland. Its Circular Saloon and Oval Staircase are acknowledged as the final masterpiece.
Today, Ike's Scottish holiday retreat provides exclusive accommodation for visitors in 6 bedrooms. There is a charming round sitting room with one of the most spectacular sea views in Scotland, and an elegant dining room where guests enjoy the best of Scottish food.
Type of rooms: The Eisenhower ApartmentThe Eisenhower Apartment is self contained on the top floor of the castle and can be reached by stairs or lift/elevator. All the other rooms are arranged around a magnificent central Oval Staircase.
The Eisenhower Suite has twin beds, bathroom and dressing room; the Ailsa Suite has a splendid four poster bed and private bathroom; the Kennedy and Guilt Suites are twin bedded rooms each with private bathroom. The Adam and Cairncross Rooms have twin beds and share a bathroom and are ideal for a family.

The Castle stands in 600 acres of Ayrshire's finest woodland and coastal walks. Culzean is in the heart of Burns country, a central base for visiting the poet's haunts.
Activities such as riding, clay pigeon shooting, fishing and sailing can be arranged. Some of the best golf in Scotland is close at hand at Turnberry, Troon, Prestwick and Western Gailes.
From April to October the Castle can be hired after 4.30 pm. In winter, it can be available for functions throughout the day. Some rooms in the Castle and other buildings around Culzean's beautiful grounds can be hired at any time for a more self contained event and at a more modest fee than that for the whole Castle. Please see the hotels website for further information.
