An aerial view of Loch Doon Castle, south of Dalmellington, South Ayrshire
The castle was originally built on an island in the loch. In 1935/6 the water level in the loch was raised artificially so the castle was moved to its present location on the bank nearby.

For the historically-minded the castle goes back to around 1300, though the original location on the island was used earlier, and it played a pivotal role in the Wars of Independence.
