Portencross Castle Farland Head, North Ayrshire
The castle is on a peninsula just north of Seamill and West Kilbride and it dates
back to the 11th century but the present castle is thought to date back to the
mid-14th century (1500s)
Now that the work to restore the castle is completed it's possible to
view the interior on fairly limited dates during the summer months.
These are older photographs looking north towards Cumbrae. Millport is
the town visible on the southern shore of Great Cumbrae.
There's a corresponding structure over the water on Lesser Cumbrae
on Castle Island, visible on the right of this photo, but we've no
idea if it's connected. Probably not.
