About Carnell Estates

Renowned for Golfing and Shooting breaks in Ayrshire.

Carnell House is an elegant country house set in 2000 acres of magnificent gardens and grounds. The House dates back to the 14th century although the main part of the house dates back to 1837.

Carnell Estates is world-renowned as a beautiful destination for unobtrusive, yet extremely comfortable, luxury hospitality. The House can be reserved for a variety of uses including shooting parties, golfing groups as well as private and corporate parties throughout the year. Shooting is available within the Estate and golf is available within 10 minutes drive. Notable courses include Royal Troon, Dundonald, Prestwick, Turnberry and Western Gailes.

The historic 10 acre garden has featured in the “Beechgrove Garden”, “Country Life”, The “Good Gardens Guide” as well as Suki Urquhart’s book “The Scottish Gardener”. Carnell has a traditional walled garden with a 100 yard long herbaceous border, as well as a rock and water garden, gazebo with Burmese statues, lawns and many other features of interest. Herbaceous, rose and phlox borders are in full bloom during July.
