Castles of Scotland

Dalquharran Castle was built by Robert Adam as a castle style mansion after its commission by Thomas Kennedy of Dunure, who was married to the niece of Robert Adam.
โ–ซ๏ธ
Work began in 1785 and incorporated some similar features to nearby Culzean Castle which Adam was still working on at the time.
โ–ซ๏ธ
Like Culzean, Dalquharran was designed as a family home and remained in possession of the Kennedy family until the 1930s when it was put up for auction.
โ–ซ๏ธ
Bought by a Timber Merchant from Troon, the castle was subsequently leased to the Scottish Youth Hostel Association and then occupied by the Langside School for the Deaf during World War II. The castle was later sold to John Stewart, a Produce Merchant from Girvan.
โ–ซ๏ธ
John Stewart found that the building was too expensive to maintain and under his ownership the current fate of Dalquharran was sealed. In order to avoid paying rates on the building, the lead roof was removed in 1967 so the structure would be classed as uninhabitable. Open to the elements, the interior gradually began to erode and collapse.
โ–ซ๏ธ
It was classed as a listed building in 1971 and over the years there have been various plans to redevelop it into a hotel, however the plans have never progressed and Dalquharran Castle still lies abandoned.
