One of Ayrshire's best-preserved castles, Dean Castle was the home and stronghold of the Boyds, Lords of Kilmarnock for over 400 years.

Set within a beautiful park, it houses impressive displays of arms, armour and early musical instruments. The recently acquired Eglinton Watercolours and Shields, bought with Art Fund help, also provide added interest.
