Culzean Castle
Robert Adam substantially transformed an earlier castle for David Kennedy, tenth Earl of Cassilis in 1775. Adam worked on the castle's interior as well as the Home Farm and stables Link . The spectacular oval staircase is regarded as one of Adam's finest achievements. A west wing was added in 1879. The castle houses historic collections relating to Robert Adam, tables, chairs and wall sconces as well as original 18th-century items and some Adam revival pieces that were owned by the Kennedy family. Other features in the estate include the Camellia House Link ; walled garden Link ; Swan Pond Link and cottage Link . Culzean Castle and Country Park is owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland LinkExternal link .
