The Giffen Castle Apartment is superbly situated on the top floor of a small baronial castle tucked away at the end of half a mile of private drive and amongst mature woodland.

Only 30 minutes from Prestwick and Glasgow International Airports, the Giffen Castle Apartment is an ideal base for keen golfers (the championship courses of Troon and Turnberry can be reached within the hour). For those interested in Scottish heritage and literature, it stands right on the edge of Burns country.

The apartment is extremely well-appointed and has all the style and atmosphere one would associate with baronial accommodation including many original features such as a speaking tube with bell and two pull cords which were used to summon the staff once upon a time.   There are spacious rooms of interesting shapes, high ceilings, a big bay window with working shutters and one of the turrets even serves as a walk-in wardrobe! Bright and sunny in its elevated position, it overlooks the gardens and has an entrance from the courtyard (with stairs).

Map & Local

The apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the cultural and shopping attractions of Glasgow (40 minutes), Edinburgh (90 minutes) and central and south west Scotland in general. There is also the option of leaving the car at Dalry (4m), from where there is a regular train service to Glasgow (journey time only 20 minutes).

The nearest towns of Beith (4m) and Dalry (4m) both offer shops, pubs and restaurants, while the pretty Clyde resort of Largs (famous Italian ice cream in an Art Deco setting at Nardini's) is only 18 miles away.

From Ardrossan (16m) it is possible to take the car ferry to the lovely island of Arran and near Troon (20m) there are sandy beaches to enjoy. Just to the south towards Turnberry, Culzean Castle (40m) in its dramatic cliff-top setting, is well worth a visit.
