Craufurdland Estate offers the perfect outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful Scottish countryside with a wide variety of outdoor pursuits, including Mountain Biking, walking through the woodlands and fly-fishing. ENTRANCE and GARDEN The Towerhouse experience starts as soon as you arrive at the commanding Entrance, flanked by imposing gate pillars, with views down the half mile tree lined avenue which leads to the castle. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident Roe Deer which often bound across the drive, and admire ducks, Heron and leaping Trout in the beautiful Craufurdland Loch. As you reach the end of the avenue, you can wonder at the strange arched shaped ‘Bee Boles’ set in the wall of the Castle’s old Coach house and Stables (now a private House), before driving down to the castle, whose castellations and tower only appears over the tops of the Rhododendrons as you enter the gardens of the Castle. The imposing Gothic Façade of golden sandstone stands looking over the large gravel driveway which leads to the expansive front lawn with a the Ha-Ha wall at the end of the lawn separating the grounds from the field beyond. The entrance to the Tower house sits discreetly to the righthand side of the castle, within the 13th Century Tower, complete with castellation’s, balistraria and machicolation. HALL Entering the Hall of the Towerhouse is like stepping back in time, with the beautiful; sandstone Norman Vaulted ceiling, huge Flagstone floor. Pass through the arched door at the end of the hall to access the Kitchen, Dining Room or Main stairs, with the vaulted utility room and WC off to the right of the Hall. Basic Herbs, Spices, Tea, Coffee, Sugar and Milk supplied to start you off. Consumables such at toilet paper, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, bathroom cleaning products etc are also provided. More

About the neighbourhood
Near the lovely village of Fenwick, just north of Kilmarnock. Its only 25 minutes from Glasgow City Centre, with some of the best shopping in the UK. 1 hour from Sterling and Edinburgh and 45 minutes away from Ferry to the beautiful Isle of Arran.
Getting around
The nearest town is Kilmarnock , which has both a train Station and a Bus Terminal. The no 4 bus goes through the Fenwick Village which is 1.2 miles from the castle. X77 X76 stop on Glasgow Road 1.3 miles away, accessed by the Kilmarnock drive. If you want to use the castle a base for sight-seeing i would recommend a car.
