Our day out at Culzean Castle

There really is no hint of the magic about to enfold as we drive along the wide sweeping driveway on the way to Culzean Castle in south Ayrshire.

The Drovers Inn

I’m a bit ashamed of the fact that I have lived in the west of Scotland for almost eight years and have only been to Loch Lomond three times. The third time was this past weekend while taking my American parents around to tour some of the famous Scottish sights.  We were recommended The Drovers Inn, so we drove down the full length of the beautiful loch to give it a try.

Newhailes

Newhailes is a fine late 17th-century house with impressive 18th-century additions and interiors, set in a fascinating 18th-century designed landscape. Bought in the early 1700s by Sir David Dalrymple, of the Scots legal and political dynasty, the most remarkable addition was the library, which played host to many famous figures of the Scottish Enlightenment. Much of the original decoration and furnishing has survived intact, though worn, retaining the mellowness of its interiors rather than being an immaculate restored dwelling.
