Magical, luxurious and truly unique - this restored castle is simply stunning and sure to provide an unforgettable getaway with a group of family or friends.

Perched on the edge of the Clyde Muirshiel Park and perfectly located for walkies on Ayrshire's pretty coast, this unique castle conversion is ideal for a holiday that ticks all the boxes for the dog-loving family. Filled to the brim with character, this home sleeps six excitable humans and two furry friends. Kids and canines can enjoy exploring the seemingly endless gardens whilst the grown-ups unwind on the patio with a morning coffee or wee evening dram.

This remarkable home was built from the ruins of a 14th-century castle and boasts unique turrets and original stone walls. Inside, you'll find the place has been modernised to the highest standard, creating a comfortable and stylish family home. Head to the open-plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, throwing open the French doors to let the breeze flow in. On cooler evenings, you'll no doubt find yourself curled up in an armchair in the first-floor sitting room, exhausted dogs calmly curled up at your feet. Both humans and canines can enjoy the warm embrace of the roaring wood burner in the sitting room and the ground floor lounge.

Saunter over the stone bridge and explore the wild woodlands, leaving no stick unfetched in the wide Clyde Muirshiel Park that backs the property. Alternatively, embark on a long dog walk along the coast, taking in remarkable sea views and watching out for otters and oystercatchers. Enjoy a day out in the nearby seaside town of Largs, an enjoyable 2.5-mile walk hugging the coastline. Explore the pretty town, play fetch on the shingle beach or stop off for ice cream in one of the many popular parlours. Be sure to pick up a meaty treat for Rover whilst in town!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

No other words other than absolutely stunning and beautiful. Both in the location with its breathtaking views and in the castle with its quirky features, beautiful, bespoke wooden features and obviously the hot tub! We kept seeing something new carved in the woodwork all the time.
