Dunure Castle is located in the village of Dunure on the west coast of Scotland, in South Ayrshire. Dunure Castle is in ruins and sits on a rocky promontory overlooking the small Dunure harbour. The castle consisted of two sections; an irregular shaped keep on the top of a precipitous rock and other buildings at a lower level.
A castle existed on this site from the late 13th century. The current remains dating to the 15th and 16th century. The castle is the point of origin of the Kennedys of Carrick, who once ruled over much of south western Scotland.
The castle is open to the public and is within the Kennedy Park, which has a number of facilities for visitors.
