DUNDONALD CASTLE

There’s little romantic or pretty about Dundonald Castle.  Perched high above the village, it is a no-fuss functional and formidable 3-storey tower house inside a walled enclosure.  The high-vaulted halls and gloomy prison of this powerful medieval stronghold, built in the 1370s by King Robert II, can still be appreciated.  Robert was high steward of Scotland and the first Stewart monarch, whose descendant James VI would become King of England and Wales. The castle stands on the site of at least two earlier castles as well as Bronze Age and Iron Age remains.
