Ardrossan Castle

Published: 04 Dec 2022

The Castle at Ardrossan, is situated upon a rocky hill, which gives it its name, made up of ard, meaning height, and rossan, a rocky promontory. 

The current ruins are on the site of an earlier castle owned by the Barclay family. By the thirteenth century, it had passed to the Ardrossan family.

The castle has long been deemed a distinctive feature of the town of Ardrossan.

In this video, we were able to enter the land surrounding the castle and film sections that are not generally open to the public. Because of the condition of the structure and the risk of potential falling masonry the area is normally locked off behind secure fencing.
