Whether you have just had your wedding day, finished an exhausting round of business meetings or played a 36-hole golfing marathon at Turnberry and Royal Troon, you’re going to need somewhere to rest and recuperate. Our accommodation fits the bill nicely, and you’ll soon be soothed by the grand setting and the ever-welcoming, friendly staff here at Blairquhan.

You may decide to stay in the castle itself or choose to make use of one of the beautiful cottages that are available. Either way, you’re guaranteed to find everything to your satisfaction. Once fully rested you can explore the grounds of the estate and maybe even partake in a little fly-fishing on Blairquhan’s own small stretch of the River Girvan should you so desire.

The former European City of Culture, Glasgow, is only an hour away if you want to give your visit an urban edge. Widely regarded as one of the UK’s finest shopping cities, Glasgow also has a wealth of intellectual attractions including an assortment of museums, art galleries and concert halls.

Whatever you decide to do with your time here, being with us will make your stay.

"We recently had our civil partnership ceremony over a 3-day weekend at Blairquhan Castle and it was perfect from start to finish. Recent refurbishments have really improved the look of the castle and the grounds, and all of our guests were so impressed by the venue and accommodation. The staff really looked after us and made the entire event very stress free for us, which was greatly appreciated and exactly what you'd want on your big day. Everything was 'nae bother'! We absolutely loved every moment of our weekend there, and we'll always have very fond memories of the fantastic time we spent with our friends and loved ones in such special surroundings. We even plan to come back on our anniversary to rent a cottage and reminisce. We couldn't recommend Blairquhan highly enough as the perfect spot for an unforgettable wedding."
August Wedding


How wonderful the wedding was, every one loved Blairquhan and marvelled at the beautiful rooms and great food. As well as the roaring log fires with tea and home baking on arrival. We would like to thank the family and staff at Blairquhan who made us feel very welcome. I would like to have written a testimonial for the website but can't see a way to do that!"
