Home to Scots King Robert II, grandson of Robert the Bruce; it’s where the formidable Stewart dynasty was born. The 14th century Castle, its ancient hilltop and surrounding woodland hold their secrets and those of the powerful Cochrane family, favourites of King Charles I.

Experience impressive barrel-vaulted ceilings, enjoy spectacular coastal views and join the Castle Team for stories and rare finds from the site’s 2000-year-old past. The Castle’s rich history is illustrated for all ages, through initiatives in Education, Archaeology, Events and Exhibitions.

Dundonald Castle’s legacy is just beginning. It’s a vibrant ‘living’ monument and holds a special place in the heart of its village. The busy Visitor Centre and welcoming café are the focal point for the famous Dundonald Highland Games and a unique place for local residents and their children to make memories for years to come.
