Dundonald Castle and Visitor Centre

Dundonald Castle and Visitor centre, Winehouse Yett, Dundonald, KA2 9HD

Dundonald Castle is a splendid example of a 14th-century medieval tower house, with a fine barrel-vaulted ceiling in the lower hall.

Sitting on a prominent hilltop in Dundonald village, Dundonald Castle commands fine views over the Firth of Clyde. The castle was built on the site of earlier castles belonging to the High Stewards of Scotland and can be regarded as the cradle of the Stewart Dynasty.

Explore the high-vaulted halls and gloomy dungeons of this splendid stronghold, perched on a hill above the village. The main tower was built in the 1370s by King Robert II to mark his succession to the throne. Its heritage is explored in the Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre includes an exhibition illustrating the history of the site and a display of some of the artefacts found during archaeological excavations on the hill. There is also a small coffee and gift shop.
