Fun Family Activities

The castle offers a host of family activities within the hotel grounds, either to entertain the whole group together or as a small distraction whilst some of the adults enjoy time in the local spa or on one of the area's exceptional golf courses.

There are over 36 acres of beautiful gardens in which to play, as well as lots of sports activities for children to enjoy.

  • The tennis court
  • A croquet lawn
  • Falconry experiences - children love Ronnie the Harris Hawk swooping down from the castle parapets onto their arm, whilst under the safe supervision of an experienced and dedicated falconer
  • Miles of woodland walks - see rabbits, hares, red deer, roe deer, red squirrels, hawks, falcons, woodpeckers and owls!
  • We also have a wide selection of books, DVDs, videos and games suitable for children of varying ages.

Outwith the Castle there is something to suit children of all ages from Heads of Ayr Farm Park, Cream of Galloway Ice Cream Visitor Centre, Cocoabean Chocolate Centre to Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre with Archery, Mountain Balling and Zipwire, Galloway Activity Centre and much more.
