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.

The Friends of Dundonald Castle have decided to temporarily close Dundonald Castle and the Visitor Centre due to the current situation and advice from the government and Historic Environment Scotland. HES have now closed all sites including the castle.

Our top priority, as always, is the health and safety of all of our volunteers, visitors and staff.
We are hoping to be open again as soon as we are able to and will be keeping you all updated over the coming days and weeks through an online presence.

Please keep an eye out on our website and social media for updates on reopening dates.

You can still contact us in all the usual ways and we hope to keep everyone smiling with some great posts!
