Maybole castle


Maybole has its roots in the Middle Ages, and it shows in the fine buildings you can spot along the High Street; from the Town Hall to Maybole Castle. This impressive building dates back to 1560, and was the meeting point for local lords and landowners.  

You’ll spot other interesting buildings around Maybole, the 19th century Parish Church is set in striking orange stone and has an unusual architechtural style, but most impressive of all is Culzean Castle, just a short drive from Maybole. 

If golf is more your style, there’s a picturesque 9-hole golf course that’s open to visitors, and for sight-seeing, Maybole is well placed for lots of South Ayrshire’s best attractions.
