Castles and historic houses

East Ayrshire is home to many castles, historic houses and estates, showing fine examples of architecture and telling fascinating historical tales which highlight the area's rich cultural heritage.

Many of the buildings are well preserved and worth a visit to see them in their splendour and to find out about past inhabitants, while others lie in ruins, but are still worth exploring to allow your imagination to picture how things once were in days gone by.
