Ardgillan Castle

This 80 ha demesne by the sea was acquired by the Reverend Robert Taylor, in 1737 . The original Georgian house was enlarged in the late 18C. The billiard room, dining room, small study and library contain mementoes and furniture belonging to the Taylor family. The kitchens, larder and scullery are in the basement. Beyond the rose gardens are the walled gardens, laid out with lawns, flowers and vegetables in geometric plots.
