Cafe

Within our Visitor Centre, is our small and cosy café with indoor seating for around twenty, complimented by our (often) sunny outdoor seating area for offering un-rivalled views of the castle. No passing traffic with nasty fumes, instead just enjoy the peaceful surroundings; there really isn’t anywhere else in the county that can boast of such a location.

Our centre is not just for castle visitors though. Why not join us after an invigorating walk, or a gentle stroll along the historic smuggler’s trail that runs from Troon’s South Beach, through the ancient woodlands of Fullarton and Dundonald all the way to the castle. An extensive choice of ‘Italian Aroma’ coffee awaits, along with a range of teas and herbal teas. Soya milk is available as a dairy alternative.

We are all absolutely delighted that yesterday the Leadership Panel at South Ayrshire Council unanimously approved the asset transfer of the Visitor Centre and a small area of adjacent land to Friends Of Dundonald Castle SCIO.

The Visitor Centre was built 23 years ago for our charity and we are thrilled that the asset transfer will secure it for our community.

So happy that we can continue to develop all our current community activities, local groups and education outreach!

A huge thanks to everyone for your unwavering support throughout the process, letters and surveys of support and great enthusiasm. We couldn’t have done it without you!

These dedicated crafters braved Storm Ciara for our Sunday Crafts! Making fairy doors, hopefully some of the boys and girls will put them at trees on a winters walk or in their garden so the fairies can stay safe from the wind! 🧚‍♀️🧚‍♂️
