This afternoon I am presenting a few images of Culzean Castle which is located about 60 mins south of Glasgow via a scenic drive along the Ayrshire coast. It is possible to link in a visit to the Castle with a visit to Robert Burns’ birthplace.

Culzean Castle is really a grand house. It benefits from a magnificent location on the coast and sits in a huge estate open to the public. So, it is possible to spend the whole day there-weather permitting!!

The castle is an 18th century mansion designed by Robert Adam for the Kennedy family. There is also an interesting garden.

Images below are of the castle and grounds.




Today, I am presenting a few images of the famous Old Course at St. Andrews (home of golf).

This in recognition of the fact that Catswhiskerstours is shortly to announce a new golfing product centred on top courses with a PGA golf pro. So, please see the main website at www.catswhiskerstours.co.uk for more information.

Old Course tee times may be available.
