    Lochinch Castle

    Photograph and information of Lochinch Castle part of the Stair Estates famed for its Victorian stables and weddings

    This is a fine example of an early Victorian Scottish castle, built for comfort and opulence rather than defence. It forms part of the Stair Estates which includes the nearby Castle Kennedy and Gardens which are open to the public.

    Lochinch Castle











    Lochinch Castle is the private home of the Earl and Countess of Stair and does not allow visitors except by arrangement such as for weddings or their Christmas fair. We were fortunate enough to be able to see their art exhibition in the Victorian stables so took these photographs.
