As from today, 23rd March, Kelburn Country Centre will be closed until further notice in line with Government recommendations and the safety of the public. All car parks will be locked and we ask any walkers to refrain from accessing the country centre area and the residential homes.

Our Easter program has taken into consideration the public concern for Coronavirus.  

At this time we are monitoring guidelines from government and industry.  We certainly hope to welcome many of you to Kelburn this Easter and we will keep updating you via the webpage and facebook.  In terms of prebought tickets please hold off contacting us as we will contact you directly with any significant changes. Kelburn is well placed to provide an outdoor experience, and have a creative offering which avoids queing and group activities.  Onsite, we have hand washing facilities and a regular cleaning schedule in place.

Kelburn is currently continuing with business as normal.  Should we experience a forced closure due to Coronavirus, any pre-bought tickets will not be refunded, but your ticket will remain valid for the full 2020 season. Customers will be able to contact our team to select a forthcoming event or day visit.  Where there is a variance in value, this will be addressed.

“Had an absolutely brilliant day at the Kelburn estate today, the Secret Forest was brilliant, my two girls loved it and so did the adults. Nature trail, parks and facilities were fantastic and we will most definitely be back.”

Kelburn is one of the largest riding centres in the west of Scotland, providing all that is necessary for beginners to accomplished riders.


Based around a 13th Century castle that’s had an amazing makeover courtesy of a team of Brazilian artists, the estate near Largs, Ayrshire also features dramatic walks, breathtaking gardens and many features of historical interest. Kelburn Castle is currently having restoration work carried out.  Elements of this project will be concluded later this year and will help preserve the Castle for many years to come. The work includes re-roofing the building and doing internal structural works. The owners have funded this project and received support from Historic Environment Scotland due to the Castle’s historic importance. Some 2000 acres is rough moorland, and 1500 acres of the better land is contained within a 7ft wall that encircles the heart of the estate.
