On Sunday I visited Dundonald Castle. It is very close to where we live and can you believe it's the first time I've visited it - is that shocking or what!!!
There is a visitor centre and a museum but it is only open from April to October, so I will have to go back then.
The other thing about going later in the year is that the weather and visibility may be a bit better. The views from the castle are lovely so it will be well worth the visit then.
There is a fairly steep climb up to the castle.
Now for a little bit of history that I found on the Dundonald Castle web page.
Dundonald Castle is a fortified tower house built for Robert II on his accession to the throne of Scotland in 1371 and it was used as a royal residence by the early Stewart kings for the next 150 years. It was said to be Robert II’s favourite residence and it was here that he died in 1390.
On a separate note - I managed to motivate myself and go to the gym today. Yay for me, hopefully that is me back on the health track again. Watch this space!!!
