One thing to remember when planning an urbex explore, always have a back up!
Our original intended explore for that day was a no go thanks to some jobsworth of a security guard, so off we went further into Ayrshire in search of Dalquharrah Castle.
After ditching the car we walked off through the fields to find the newer Dalquharran Castle (yes there are two of them!) and we weren’t disappointed as it came into view on the brow of a hill.
The castle is rumoured to be waiting refurbishment to make it into the centre piece of a new golf course but work is far from starting. Most of the upper levels are completely erradicated and open to the elements due to the lack of a roof.
The most intact part of the castle is the basement, which we had to fight our way through all sorts of nettles, thorn bushes etc to get to.
Here are the remains of a few ovens in the basement, slowly rusting into nothing.
As with many of the sites we have visited they permanently doors open day.
The day was absolutely stunning with some of the best weather we had all year, which made this a great explore.
