Having lapsed into obscurity from the 16th Century onwards, Dundonald Castle has experienced something of a renaissance, transformed from a forgotten and neglected ruin into one of Ayrshire’s must see visitor attractions.
The Friends of Dundonald Castle seek to promote awareness and interpret the history of the site by providing; guides who can conduct visitors around the castle, an exhibition space with highly detailed models recreating the evolution of the castle hill and by the production of a new guidebook relating the castles development and history.
But it’s more than a visitor attraction. With weddings, musical events and even serving as a film venue, Dundonald Castle is increasingly a living castle, contributing not only as a stopping point for visitors but also as a focus for the local community.
