Dunure Castle revised


The Castle is located on the west coast of Scotland, in South Ayrshire, about five miles south of Ayr and close to the village of Dunure. Today the castle stands in ruins on a rocky promontory on the Carrick coast, overlooking the small harbour of Dunure.


The site dates from the late 13th century; the earliest charter for the lands dating from 1256, but the remains of the building are of 15th- and 16th-century origin. The castle is the point of origin of the Kennedys of Carrick who once ruled over much of south western Scotland and were granted the lands in 1357.


In August 1563, Mary, Queen of Scots, visited the castle for three days during her third progress round the west of the country.
