Culzean Castle

Spent the best part of a day at this amazing castle on the Ayrshire coast, managed by the National Trust For Scotland. Culzean Castle (pronounced 'kul-een') is famous for having an apartment where former President Dwight D Eisenhower stayed. That apartment was closed off to mere mortals like myself, but available for private hire. The castle itself has typically lavish interiors, replete with ornate furnishings and decor, as well as a superb walled garden and swan pond. Towards the end of my day there, the heavens decided to empty their bladder so I took shelter inside a boathouse. Inside the roof of the boathouse was a small swallows nest, so I got a few shots of the chicks while waiting for the rain to subside (alas it didn't).All in all, a great place with much to see. Thank you as ever to the guides for their time and help.
