Culzean Castle, Ayrshire

Culzean is one of Ayrshire's favourite tourist attractions. The original Castle was remodelled between 1772 and 1790 by Robert Adam for the 10th Earl of Cassillis. Robert Adam carried out a massive schedule of enlargement and decoration in his Neo-classical style. This included the enormous circular Saloon and Oval Staircase as well as ceilings, plasterwork mouldings and paintings by Antonio Zucchi.
