  • Small but well-preserved castle with great views across the Ayrshire countryside. It's hard to imagine what life would have been like when the castle was occupied but the exhibits inside give a good impression. Good tea room and play park as well.
  • A wonderful old castle to visit. Lots of history to learn. Visitor centre is excellent with super friendly and welcoming staff, great food and amenities and a play park for the kids. Highly recommended !
  • Interesting architecture but site guide could be more interactive, left us to wander around on our own.
  • Was at the cafe for cappuccino and a slice of cake, friendly and helpful staff 9/10 only because I was given a knife with my cake instead of a fork/spoon lol
  • Had grandchild with me good they let her dress up but not a lot really
