Description

King Robert II rebuilt this castle which became his
favourite residence. His chief work at Dundonald consists
of a very large oblong tower-house, remarkable in itself
and for the way in which it incorporates the remains of a
13th century gatehouse - Most of this tower, and much of
the barmkin well survive - The castle stands on an
isolated hill and is a notable landmark.
