“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.”

“Excellent place for a family day out! I doubt we even scratched the surface…loads to see! Beautiful and enchanting.”

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.
