Finalist at the Scottish Hospitality Awards, in the category "Scottish B&B of the Year 2018".

For guests who love traditional Victorian architecture and panoramic Scottish scenery, Carlton Seamill has much to offer. An impressive, stone-built, Scottish Victorian house, dated 1883, Carlton occupies an ideal location at Seamill, on the Ayrshire coast. It enjoys a commanding view, over Seamill shore and beach, to the world-famous Firth of Clyde and the beautiful, mountainous Isle of Arran.

The Rennie Family have cherished Carlton carefully, for over 60 years. With its original period features mostly still intact, it is a fine example of a Scottish Victorian family home. Guests frequently remark on the house’s relaxing, “get-away-from-it-all” atmosphere and on the craftsmanship, style and graciousness that are characteristic of the Victorian era. On the ground-floor, the handsome, historically-detailed reception rooms afford magnificent views, over the Rose Garden and the Croquet Lawn, towards the peaks of Arran. Throughout the house, Carlton’s elegant Victorian staircase conveys a feeling of light and spaciousness, leading to the comfortable, first-floor guest-accommodation. Carlton’s west-facing garden-gate provides easy access to Seamill’s extensive, sandy beach – only a stone’s-throw away.

Our guests typically enjoy walking along the beach on a lovely evening, watching the wheeling flocks of seabirds and the gregarious colonies of seals. Fabulous, red-and-gold sunsets are Seamill's special feature!

The famous golf coures such as West Kilbride Golf course is one mile away and Turnberry Golf Club and Royal Troon and within an hours drive. If you are travelling to the wonderful Isle of Arran this will be a perfect stop, just  4 miles from Ardrossan. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
