A Unique Ayrshire Welcome

At Dundonald Castle & Visitor Centre, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Open all year, it’s busy with visitors from all over the world, wanting to know more about Scotland’s dramatic past. You can buy a ticket at the Visitor Centre and be taken on a tour of the Castle by friendly community historians. Their knowledge of Dundonald’s special place in history is amazing, and tours cater to all ages and interests.



Children are able to dress up and join in – they are always delighted by tales of medieval castle life and spooky ghost stories!

Staff can provide activities for them when they get back to the Cafe, so screens won’t always be needed for you to enjoy a relaxing coffee and something delicious to eat.



Dogs are very welcome on site,  as long as you make sure they’re under control and any mess is cleared up!
