The Turret room

The Turret room.  Entirely lined with elm and oak with a 360 degrees panorama view over the hills and sea, and a star lit ceiling


The lawn in front of Knock Old Castle is part of the facilities.  Please feel free to wander down to the Old Bridge path that goes along the escarpment.


There are some lovely walks up to and around Knock Hill which is the hill you can see immediately to the east (inland) side of the Castle. To reach it, turn left when you go out the main gate, walk downhill (northerly direction) for about 400 yards and follow a sign that says “Knock Hill” off to the right (east ) side of the road.  It is part of the Ayrshire Coastal Path which you could follow for nearly 100 miles to Ballantrae in South Ayrshire.


Located in the turret, the sauna provides a welcoming heat to help you relax and unwind.

Knock Old Castle also has a hot tub which allows you to unwind with a glass of wine in the most wonderful surroundings and sea views.
