About this property

Overlooking the picture-perfect Ayrshire coastline, Knock Old Castle is a stunning dog-friendly residence in Scotland offering excellent leisure facilities, gorgeous decor, and endless opportunities for rural walkies. With roots dating back to the 14th-century, history buffs will love the grand architecture and period features, which include battlements, red bricks, and impressive spires. Inside, you’ll find colourful decor and quirky features, including painted ceilings, stained-glass, and plush furnishings. There are plenty of creature comforts to make use of as well, ranging from ornate wood burners to flat-screen televisions. The real highlight has to be the seven-seater hot tub - perfect for stargazing on serene Autumn nights - and the private sauna, which looks out toward the Isle of Bute. And of course, there’s plenty for Fido to enjoy. Dogs will adore the acres of grounds, and the coast is right on your doorstep - great for relaxing walks. Hop over to the Isle of Arran for breathtaking views or follow the Ayrshire Coastal Path with your furry friend in tow. Then, after a day of adventure, enjoy a glass of fizz in the hot tub while Fido snoozes by the fire. 

Dine with Your Dog

Dogs can stick to their regular eating routines thanks to the fully-fitted kitchen. Featuring an electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and more, you’ll have everything you could want to craft delicious meals. You can enjoy your meals at the ornate, hand-crafted dining table or step through the patio doors onto the peaceful courtyard. There are plenty of cosy boltholes in the surrounding area for you to sniff out as well.

Bow wow factor

Dogs can explore the bustling grounds or enjoy walks along the coast. The Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long walking path, comes highly recommended!
