A Unique Ayrshire Welcome

At Dundonald Castle & Visitor Centre, you can be sure of a warm and friendly 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 one of our enthusiastic volunteer tour guides. Their knowledge of Dundonald’s special place in history is amazing, and tours cater to all ages and interests. (Please note that all of our tour guides are volunteers and may not always be available on the day of your visit).

Check out our what to expect page for more info on our current Covid-19 measures.


Although dogs are not allowed inside the Visitor Centre itself, dogs are very welcome on site and can be taken inside the castle, as long as you make sure they’re under control and any mess is cleared up.
