Culzean Castle Country Park
Maintained by the National Trust for Scotland, Culzean Castle Country Park is packed with attractions. In addition to the Castle, a magnificent 18th-century Robert Adam mansion house, the park also features miles of woodland walks, a deer park, beautiful gardens and much more.
The BLBS in Scotland organises several shoots at Culzean every year. Target meetings are shot on the elegant Fountain Court in front of the Castle, and clout meetings are held either in the Events Field or in the Park Field, both near the Stables Visitor Centre.

Directions (Route Map)
From the north: Culzean is on the Ayrshire Tourist Coastal Route, but is most easily accessed from Maybole on the A77 Trunk road. At the centre of Maybole, take the Culzean Road (the B7023) past the railway station, and out of the town. Follow the road until it meets and officially becomes the A719, which joins it sharply from the right about 1½ miles outside Maybole. Follow the road for a further 1½ miles from this junction before reaching the main entrance for the Country Park on your right.
From the south (Stranraer): Follow the A77 as far as Turnberry, some 4½ miles north of Girvan. There, turn left to take the A719 Ayrshire Tourist Route through Turnberry and Maidens. The A719 climbs inland as it leaves Maidens, skirting the Culzean Estate. The Country Park's main entrance is on the left, about 2½ miles from Maidens.
