Dundonald Castle

The remains of Dundonald Castle stand on the site of an Iron Age Hillfort. Three subsequent castles have stood on the hill but nothing survives from the first twelfth century earthwork and timber structure. There are some remains of the thirteenth century castle including the well and part of the tower. The castle that can be seen today is the third fourteenth century castle with later fifteenth century extensions.

Getting there

The site is above the village of Dundonald/Dun Dhomhnaill south from the A579 in Ayrshire. It is open to the public from April until October. A footpath also connects Dundonald Castle and Auchans house.
