Dunure Beach and Shorefront

Sandgate, Ayr Ayrshire KA7 1BW

Phone number:


Dunure shorefront has a lovely little harbour, which was originally used for fishing. In 1811 improvements were made and a number of fisherman cottages built around the same time. Today the harbour is only used by pleasure craft. The beach is predominately rock and shingle - perfect for those who like to study rock pools. From the beach you cannot fail to notice Dunure Castle which sits upon a rocky outcrop and commands a panoramic view of the Firth of Clyde.
