CULZEAN Castle hosted a successful re-visit to Christmas in the Victorian era this year.

The event attracted more than 2,000 visitors who experienced life for the rich and poor.

Recreating Christmas Eve 1879, the interactive experience took place over the first and second weekends of December at the National Trust for Scotland property near Maybole and allowed families to meet the castle’s aristocratic family and hard-working staff as they prepared for Christmas Day.
