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.
