The Space

The charming Ainslie Bedroom features two cosy twin beds and looks inland to Ardrossan Road and Seamill.

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 most of its original period features 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. If our guests are very fortunate, they may witness one of the fabulous, breathtaking sunsets for which the Firth of Clyde is renowned. At the least, lungfuls of healthy sea-air are guaranteed!

Some of Scotland’s finest restaurants are only a short drive from Carlton. For example, “Fins” (Seafood Restaurant) at Fencebay, Fairlie; “Braidwoods”, near Dalry; "The Waterside”, near Seamill. Information about these is readily found on the Internet.

The Seamill Hydro Hotel (bars and restaurants) and the Merrick Hotel (bar and restaurant) are only a few minutes’ walk away – along Ardrossan Road or, better still, just along the beach.

  • My daughter and I had a lovely stay with Avril. We're both big fans of vintage styling, and Avril's Victorian home is the real thing! A friendly and attentive host; comfortable beds; a good breakfast, beautiful sea views. If you're expecting all mod cons - you won't find them here, but you will enjoy all the charm of yesteryear. We were only here for a short stay this time, but I'm going to return with my husband to visit some of the islands, and we definitely be staying at Carlton Seamill.
