this was a trip down memory lane for me as I played here as a child I didn't know much about the castle so meeting the team working there on a dig was the icing on the cake for me well worth a visit the scenery is beautiful it is sadly now a ruin but the archaeologists are finding new stuff all the time see William Wallace's larder

On top of a hill and overlooking the harbour - also about the only tourist attraction in ardrossan. Rather neglected though with poor signage and poor maintenance. Good views across to the islands and beaches.

Whilst on a visit to the beach with my dog I noticed a castle I had not seen in Ayrshire before. Sitting high on a hill I researched the area and got directions to give it a visit. The remains and history of the place are very interesting. The only drawback being the amount of smashed glass probably from youngsters making their own fun.

Great ruins set on a hill with amazing views of Arran and beyond. Surrounding ground has a swingpark and picnic tables.
Quite a steep walk up and uneven ground around the ruins, wear sensible footwear.
