Dunure Castle | The Kilted Photographer visits..

It's been a while since I've posted any videos of castles, life has been hectic and just not had the time.

I decided to go to somewhere that was quite close, did not go according to plan though. It was windy and I forgot both my tripod and microphone so apologies! I'm not fully happy with the video but thought I would upload anyways.

Some history:

Dunure Castle is located on the west coast of Scotland, in South Ayrshire, about 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Ayr and close to the village of Dunure. Today the castle stands in ruins on a rocky promontory on the Carrick coast, overlooking the small harbour of Dunure.

The site dates from the late 13th century; the earliest charter for the lands dating from 1256, but the remains of the building are of 15th- and 16th-century origin. One tradition is that the castle was built by the Danes and another states that the Mackinnons held the castle from Alexander III, as a reward for their valour at the Battle of Largs.

The castle is the point of origin of the Kennedys of Carrick, who once ruled over much of south western Scotland and were granted the lands in 1357.

Anyways, here is the video. As always I welcome all feedback and comments :). Enjoy!
