The grounds at Culearn extend to approximately 2.76 acres and are a notable asset. They provide a wonderful setting for the house and are afforded a genuine sense of seclusion and privacy by a combination of a great many mature trees, well-established shrubbery, and hedgerows.

Culearn is accessed via a stone pillared, gated entrance from the country lane. Beyond the entrance, there is a private gravelled driveway, which sweeps up to the house and expands into a spacious area for multi-car parking and turning.

The mainstay of the garden extends away from the house to the South and has been landscaped and planted with diligence and enthusiasm by successive generations, to create something of an idyllic haven. There are several expanses of lawn, including a former tennis lawn which is ideal for garden sports, as well as impressive herbaceous borders, featuring a splendid array of plants, which bloom in a multi-coloured display and are accented by integral display lighting. The variegation of flowers, ornamental shrubs and specimen trees within the garden would appeal to any amateur horticulturalist, and includes Rose, Rhododendron, Heather, Foxglove, Silver Birch, Honeysukcle, Viburnum, and Acer - to name but a few.

There is a range of seating areas in the garden, thoughtfully positioned to catch the sun at different times of day. These include a South-facing flagstone patio terrace, which stretches along the principal elevation of the house and can be accessed from double doors off the sitting room, as well as a firepit area, and a decked terrace or fishing platform overlooking the Calair Burn.
In addition, the grounds incorporate a kitchen garden area, with a fruit cage, a lawn garden with an astro-turf putting green, and a children’s playframe. A former curling hut from Loch Voil has been sited at one end of the garden and makes a particularly endearing feature, serving as a small garden pavilion.

The grounds are accompanied by a selection of diligently maintained outbuildings, all of which are serviced with electricity. They include a timber garage with an adjoining workshop and a garden machinery shed, as well as a separate wood store and an additional tool shed.
