The Story So Far
Dundonald Castle museum holds an interesting exhibition, complete with a small collection of artefacts, found all around the original castle border – which stretches right into the village.
Intricate models show the settlement’s evolution from Iron Age hill fort, to a castle fit for King Robert II and his household, in the 14th century.
Initiatives in Archaeology
Due to recent finds, a state-of-the-art geophysical survey of the hillside is being carried out by Historic Environment Scotland, starting in March 2017. There are exciting plans to involve the community in archaeology on the site, and for extending the Castle Museum to create an innovative new Heritage Centre.
This is a brand new chapter for Dundonald Castle and there will be lots more news to come over the coming months. For updates, or if you would like to be involved in any of these unique projects, follow and share blog posts, or keep in touch via social media.
