Enjoyed this casrle ruin very much.........party of school children there at same time and they too obviously found it interesting......fantastic view up and down the Ayrshire Coast and even on a cold windy day the sea was amazing so made up for the lack of sunshine...........good parking and childrens play area.........close to the village amenities as well but not too suitable for folks with walking difficulties..........although car park and village itself are fine

Thank anne s

We take our grandchildren to Dunure Castle quite a lot. They love playing amongst the ruins and running about the park. There is plenty for families with children to do as there are swings,etc for them. I even noticed a family using the park's barbecue. If you go there at night there is no charge for entry so there is no excuse not to visit this wonderful place with wonderful scenery

Not much to see within the Castle but surrounding area is great. Good walks & good playpark and the beach is close by

After lunch at Dunure Inn, walk 100 yds past old Lime kiln in car park and walk around Dunure Castle which sites half way between Culzean Castle to the south and Ayr on the north. It commands a cliff edge location with rock pools below for exploring for sea life. The castle is a ruin, but it has access for seeing it construction and defences and has an well preserved Doocot where pigeons were used for eggs and food.

The castle is gorgeous. Each room is authentic and well preserved. There is a card with a detailed description of the room and its artifacts. There are guides available to answer questions. The walled gardens are also phenomenal - not to be missed!
