Magnificent Castle of Culzean and... the Kennedy Family.
Culzean castle on the Ayrshire coast is the most visited property
of the National Trust for Scotland. Built in the late 16th century
above a network of caves, the castle became a centre for smuggling
during the 18th century. Sir Thomas Kennedy, 9th Earl of Cassillis,
went on an extended grand tour in the 1750s and returned full
of ideas as to how to improve his vast estates and home. His
brother and heir commissioned Robert Adam to create his masterpiece
and became bankrupt as a result. The estate was rescued when
wealthy American cousins inherited it in 1792. Archibald Kennedy,
1st Marquess of Ailsa, completed the house and lavished money
on the property. Produced in association with the National Trust
for Scotland, this volume tells the whole history of the castle.
Michael Moss has carried out extensive research, drawing on
estate records, original plans and family correspondence to
create a major history of the castle and an account of the running
of a Scottish country estate.
