Notice of Temporary Closures at Dean Castle Country Park

*Due to unforeseen survey work required at Dean Castle, the castle buildings will be closed to the public for the forseeable future. The visitor centre, café and playpark remain closed for upgrades, however, public toilets are available to the rear of the castle.


The redevelopment work at Dean Castle Country Park is nearing completion, but there are still some closures in place. It is possible to walk to the animal paddocks via Assloss Road, please allow an hour for the walk there and back if walking with small children. Unfortunately, the path around to the paddocks is not suitable for buggies and prams.


East Ayrshire Leisure would like to thank all our visitors to the Country Park, from local dog walkers to our overseas tourists, for their ongoing patience and understanding while building and development work is taking place. To find out more about the country park’s redevelopment plans, visit the information hut located at the main car park or click here.
