The Dean Castle & Country Park, situated within Kilmarnock, is a great place to visit no matter the season. Whether you want some peace and quiet to think or have a car load of kids to entertain, there is something for you. The park suffered some damage in the recent winter storms, however repair work is well under way, and the staff are working hard to deliver a great experience for all visitors.
The beautiful castle dates back over 650 years and is a fascinating place to spend time in. It contains a world class collection of armour and musical instruments. Accompanied tours are also available at selected times throughout the season.
The country park covers over 200 acres, and has everything from quiet paths to an adventure playground and colour maze for the kids. There is also a pets corner, visitor centre, shop and tearoom.
The park hosts different events throughout the year and during the summer months there is something special almost every week.
There is so much to see and do you will want to come back time and time again, as many local (and not so local!) people do.
