  • Very interesting heritage site with spectacular views over the sea to Arran. Sits adjacent to Kennedy Park and the harbour at Dunure, which also has a lovely tea room, so all in all a worthwhile place...  more »
  • It is a nice castle, near a stunning beach. Despite the fact that it is a ruin, it is worth seeing. Small car parking available, no fee for entrance to the castle.  more »

  • One of my favourite places. I always visit when I come to Ayr. We love to spend a couple of hours collecting sea glass and shells. The small cafe at Dunure harbour is also amazing and have some of the best cakes 😍
  • My favorite swim spot. A very quaint lil harbour. Nice stroll up to the castle too. There was Dolphins here when we were there 2 weeks ago
  • Spectacular views from a cliff at a place full of history and ancient tales. You can leave your car in a car park for £2 for a whole day and explore the area. Or you can stay and have a barbecue in one of a few designated areas. There's a play park as well and a Harbour cafe within a walking distance from the castle ruins. Place is never too crowded and is amazing on a nice day.
  • Loved it ! Kids had a great afternoon definitely b back soon 😊
  • Love this little ruin in a beautiful village with incredible views.
