ESTATES and GARDENS
Dumfries House is well worth a visit and is 4o minutes drive from Braehead Estate.  Set in 2,000 acres, this stunning estate and 18th-Century house with its unrivalled collection of Chippendale furniture has something for everyone.

The Walled Garden –  over the past two years this garden has been transformed from a derelict dumping site to a magnificently restored garden with a mixture of terraces, new greenhouses, formal areas and a one and a half acre Education Garden. Open all year round. 

Culzean Castle and Country Park – National Trust for Scotland Woods, beaches, secret follies, play park and a cliff-top castle – a fantastic day out. www.nts.org.uk/culzean

This glorious 260 ha estate was once the playground of David Kennedy, 10th Earl of Cassillis – a man who was keen to impress with his wealth and status. Opulent to the extreme, the park is planted with conifers and beech, sculpted around miles of sandy coastline dotted with caves, and finished off with a Swan Pond, an ice house, flamboyant formal gardens and fruit-filled glasshouses.

The castle itself is perched on the Ayrshire cliffs. It was designed by Robert Adam in the late 18th century and is filled to the turrets with treasures that tell the stories of the people who lived here.

ISLANDS
Just a short ferry ride across the Firth of Clyde and you can explore either Arran or Cumbrae, or even both! Experience perfect island life, which is full of tasty food and drink, exciting outdoor activities and beautiful views.

FOOD AND DRINK
There are numerous restaurants near to Braehead Estate only 10 minutes away.

Owner Profile

Property Owners
Charles and Sallie

How long have you owned the property?
We could not believe our good fortune when we bought Braehead Estate in early 2012. After 900 years in the ownership of one family, Blair had never previously been on the market. We came to see it, as it was very near to where my husband’s family came from in Ayrshire, and simply fell in love with it – just as our visitors do!

Since then, we have completely refurbished the house, but always keen to keep it as a wonderful family home. Having had a background in the luxury hotel industry, with Mandarin Oriental, I wanted to ensure that our guests would have a stay they would never forget – the best beds and Egyptian linens; the highest quality toiletries and towels; a great chef who prepares meals to cater for every taste using locally sourced produce; and service which is seamlessly efficient but always friendly.

We want to create an atmosphere that our guests feel they are in their own home. Braehead Estate is a house which wraps itself around you, whether it is a group of eight or 24. It works just as well for house parties, a family celebration of three different generations, for a company away day, dinner, or for a group of friends wanting to do a few rounds at the world-class Championship golf courses on the Ayrshire coast. Braehead Estate is only available for Exclusive Use for a small number of nights a year.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
From the Spring to Autumn, the gardens look stunning, with the more formal beds around the house, which were replanted last year, to the sweeping lawns which go down to the Italian Garden across the Bombo Burn. For those looking for something a bit more challenging, you are welcome to come and look at the progress we are making on restoring the fabulous 5 acre Walled Garden – and even to lend a hand if the mood takes you!

Our ambition has been to bring together the luxury of a beautiful home, the beauty and tranquillity of the Scottish countryside and the service you would expect from a top class hotel – yet less than half an hour from Glasgow city centre and its International Airports.

Blair is the most special and magical place we know, and we are delighted that our guests seem to think so too.

  • A wish to return!

    Posted by Martin on 13/01/2018

    Our four days and nights at Braehead Estate East Wing were a perfect idyll of comfort and relaxation for all six of our party. Braehead Estate provided a luxurious home for us, whether we were restfully reading by the fires in the Morning Room or Sitting Room, enjoying the first-class cuisine served in the beautiful Dining Room, playing Snooker in the Tower game room, or enjoying a walk through the surrounding 250 acre estate.
    We left reluctantly, but with memories that will never fade, and a firm wish to return.
