Dean Castle Stonework Tours
|Date||Occurs 19/04/2019 - 06/09/2019|
|Time||11.30pm - 1pm|
The tour on 6 September is part of Doors Open Day Ayrshire 2019.
Book a tour of the restoration project at Dean Castle. Find out about how the Castle’s stonework is being repaired and access areas that have been closed for some time. Meet the Visitor Centre in the Country Park to hear about the history of the Castle and its inhabitants. Then join CBC Stone’s Project Manager for a tour of the restorations, including the battlements, Laigh Tower and Great Hall.
Since the Castle is a live building site, there are some stipulations and health and safety rules which must be followed and these are explained at the start of every tour. Visitors must wear sturdy shoes or boots. The tour also involves climbing around 80 steps in quite confined spaces and therefore if you are claustrophobic or have health concerns this may not be the ideal tour for you. But if you are fit and over 18 years of age it is well worth coming along. If you would be interested in taking the tour, which is free, the next one will take place on 19th April and then 4 weekly thereafter. Tours are from 11.30am-1pm, please show tickets at the visitor centre.
No under 18s will be admitted on this tour.
Visitors will not be admitted to the site unless wearing sturdy, close-toed shoes, for example, walking boots.
Numbers for tours are limited to a maximum of 10 adults. If you book tickets but are no longer able to attend the tour, please contact 01563 554300 as there may be a waiting list for places.
This project is funded by East Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Leisure, Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Environment Scotland.
