Dundonald Castle Description
A prominent, large, stone castle built by Robert II (King Bob) in the 1370s. There are two great feasting halls, one above the other, with great vaults beneath. Remains of an earlier, but equally grand, 13thC Stewart castle are visible. Archaeological excavations show that the castle hill was occupied by a large fort in the Dark Ages and a prehistoric hill fort before that.
Your Reviews of Dundonald Castle
Les Buick (20 April 2012)
My wife and I were visiting from Australia and thoroughly enjoyed our vist to Dundonald Castle. It was one of the smaller castles we have visited and from afar looks very much a ruin, but to our surprise it still had so much to offer and to explore both inside and out. The castle site is steeped in history from as far back as the Iron Age and our visit was made so much more interesting with a personal tour with the trust guide named Stacey, who enthusiastically brought the castle's history and past very much to life and made our visit so much fun. Thank you so much and we will certainly spread the word to our friends in Australia that Dundonald Castle is very much worth a visit when visiting Scotland. Many thanks Stacey (I hope we have correctly spelt your name) for your enthusiasm and hospitality. Les & Naomi (Canberra Australia )
