Eisenhower Apartment

In November 1945, General Eisenhower was invited by the Kennedy family of Culzean to accept the tenancy of a specially created guest flat on the top floor of the Castle. General Eisenhower and members of his family stayed here several times.

After his death, The National Trust for Scotland and Scottish Heritage USA, a charitable corporation that has provided valuable support to Culzean, opened the apartment to a wider public. It is now a unique venue for corporate and private hospitality and is also one of the Trustís flagship holiday properties.

Superbly furnished and extremely comfortable, the Apartment has six double/twin bedrooms which are available either as individual accommodation or for groups of up to twelve. Guests share the drawing room and dining room, where the best of Scottish food is served.
