It is 15 mins from my place of work, a journey through beautiful scenery. One day I will have time to enjoy the many things available to do in the area! Read less

"Another great stay!"
We were delighted to have the opportunity to revisit The Manse as part of a trip to the SDSO. Neither failed to live up to expectations. We enjoyed the newly decorated Culzean bedroom complete with all the finishing touches that Karen provides along with a hearty evening meal to warm us up before the snowy night up at the observatory. Looking forward to another excuse to visit! Read less

"One of the best B&Bs I've stayed in"
Friendly welcome, large and comfortable room, good sized bathroom with super shower. Carsphairn is in the middle of nowhere, but is a good centre for hill walking and the scenery is lovely. It is in a dark sky area and the stars were brilliant (in both ways). Read less

Friendly atmosphere, beautiful house, Karen has done a great job with the interior design. I had a huge comfortable double bed, and the shower was really good. Breakfast was great too.
