  • Worth a visit for sure. Dating back to 1300s. Built on a dramatic coast sight by the Boyd family. Admission free : open weekends in April,May,June, September. Daily: July, August. The castle is also available for hire for weddings ect. 🏰 Phone 01294 823799 There is a car park which is also free. There is a walk also so why not bring a picnic & make a day of it
  • A beautiful castle in a beautiful location. Well looked after. The inner stairs have been lit up which is very pretty. The stairs lead to a veranda which provide beautiful views. Just magical.
  • Beautiful part of Ayrshire. Lovely castle, harbour and Jerry. Also a beautiful coastal walk down to Hunterston.
  • Nice wee castle with history. great views. Clyde estuary
  • Not huge but really nicely restored castle. Great to visit.
