The castle dates from 1245, one of the oldest in Ayrshire and is
situated within a small country estate with scenic views, near Fenwick.
Estimates of the date of the oldest parts of the castle range from
the 14th to the late 16th century, when it was simply a tower house.
A wing from 1648 has been identified, but the gothic style frontage
is from the early 19th century. The castle is still in private ownership.
