The BBC programme Britain’s Hidden Heritage featured Dalquharran Castle recently with some very interesting background information. It also had footage from the 70s when some of the flooring was still in place.
It’s sister castle Culzean Castle stands proudly to this day with much of the interior remaining as it was when originally designed by Robert Adam, whereas Dalquharran Castle is a ruined shell of what it used to be. It’s a shame and shocking that the land owner was allowed to remove the roofing and let the castle fall into disrepair. Both castles were designed beautifully by the same architect but both over time have had very different fates.
There have been rumours for years that it would be renovated and re-used as a golf complex but as for now it stands as a shadow of it’s former self.
