    Ref: SSAP

    These historic cottages (refs SSAJ to SSAQ) are set within the stunning Blairquhan Castle Estate in a beautiful valley with the River Girvan winding through. Blairquhan Castle, a Regency era castle, is protected as a category A listed building and the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland, the national listing of significant gardens. Used as a location for the Oscar winning film The Queen, starring Helen Mirren, Blairquhan has also featured in other TV programmes.

    The stables, designed by William Burn in 1820-24, are also of architectural interest and, along with the lodges on the estate, form the holiday accommodation. Blairquhan Bridge was also designed by William Burn; it is a single arch, stone, hump-back bridge, possibly 18th-century and B listed. The woods of Blairquhan are a major feature of landscape. Beautifully integrated into the 200 acres of parkland that make up the estate, the unique gardens at Blairquhan Castle were originally laid out back in 1816 and much of the landscaping still remains to this day, most notably the unique walled garden. The rising ground to the south allowed the landscapers to create an unusual three-walled perimeter. During its construction the main wall was built with flues installed so that it could be heated to protect the precious fruit trees during the colder Scottish months. A famous tree at Blairquhan is the ’Dool’ tree, a large sycamore sited on the lawn to the east of the house was used for execution by hanging after trial by the laird. With well-established woodlands, beautifully manicured lawns, an avenue of 18th-century lime trees and many other magnificent vistas, the estate creates a unique atmosphere and provides the ideal holiday surroundings to escape everyday life.

    Nestled in the heart of Burns’ Country, the area is steeped in tradition and history. Fans of Burns will be able to visit many attractions including Burns Cottage, the Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’Doon - the bridge from the famous poem Tam o’Shanter. Blairquhan is within walking distance to the small Ayrshire village of Straiton, and a short drive from Kirkmichael and Maybole. The entire area is known for its gently rolling landscape and hills dotted with sheep and traversed by the winding River Girvan. On a clear day, Ailsa Craig can be seen in the distance.

    Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals; it is also a haven for bird watchers.

    Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit and activities such as riding, racing and golf to enjoy. The many golf courses include the world famous Turnberry course which is close at hand. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction.

    Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan, and a short drive leads to Ayr, a traditional seaside town. Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh are perfect for a day out, as is Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, with ferry links to the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae all within easy reach. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Step back in time and enjoy a self-catering holiday at Monzie Castle Estate in Gardener’s Cottage. As the name would suggest, it was originally built to house the estate gardener and his family. The cottage has gone through a transformation and the estate team has rebuilt many original features and refurbished the furniture. The coffee table, boot rack and bench in the utility room, kitchen table and bedside tables have all been hand crafted by joiners based on the estate. There are many beautiful finishing touches, with chairs having been upholstered, cushions and curtains made and even the lampshades handmade to fit each room. The cosy living room has an open fire which is perfect to curl up in front of with a book and relax, or sit round the table in the kitchen with friends and family and discuss the next day’s activities. Whatever you choose to do during your stay, rest-assured the luxury of Gardener’s Cottage awaits your return for a peaceful and relaxing evening.
    From the doorstep there are miles of countryside through the estate to explore and guests have a perfect opportunity to view wildlife in its natural habitat, with red squirrels, deer and hares being frequent visitors. The property is close to the holiday town of Crieff with a wide array of independent shops, cafés, art galleries, park, whisky distilleries and walks along the River Earn. With 20 golf courses within 15 miles, including the famous Gleneagles, loch and river fishing, mountain biking and hill walking, this is a perfect location for all ages.
    The estate and cottage are powered by a 1950 hydro electric plant.
    Guests can request a private tour of Monzie Castle and the hydro electric plant in advance. Tours are subject to availability of the owners who work full-time whilst trying to run a very busy and demanding estate! You can read more about the history of the castle, hydro, joinery and farm on the estate website. The castle consists of an L-shaped 17th century house and a castellated country house, built in 1795. The castle was gutted in 1908 by fire and was rebuilt by Sir Robert Lorimer in 1910. The house has been unaltered since then and is a testament to Lorimer.

    Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, adjacent to Corsewall House, there are lots of walks around the estate and down to the sea you can enjoy. Garden Cottage (ref 30810) forms the west wing of the 18th-century Corsewall House and has wonderful sea views across Loch Ryan. High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) is a traditional, detached, Galloway farmhouse, built in the local vernacular style of south west Scotland and entirely surrounded by open farmland. Stables Cottage (ref 30812) is in the heart of Corsewall Estate, surrounded by historic woodland and overlooking an extensive walled kitchen garden. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas – pinks, reds, creams, yellows, purples and white – come into flower. Indeed, one of our rhododendron, known as Christmas cheer, comes out in mid December. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November. There is oodles of wildlife to spot from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. The cottage comes complete with its own red squirrel feeder, where guests can watch any number of cheeky red squirrels feeding ferociously all day. The owners record spotted at one of the feeders is currently six. Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and The Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From a historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – evidence can be seen of this on a walk along the bay and also throughout the woods at Corsewall Estate, which was requisitioned by the Royal Canadian Air Force during the War. The Galloway coastline offers an abundance of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore. Boat Bank is within a 1 mile walk of Stables Cottage (ref 30812) and Garden Cottage (ref 30810), while Port Beg is within 1 mile of High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) accessed via road. Both beaches are perfect for picnics. Walking, golf, sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking water sports and cycling are all available nearby.
