Overview

The earliest part of this fortress dates from 1350, when it was built by the Boyd family, who had been given the estate of Kilmarnock in 1316 by Robert the Bruce, as a reward for their support during the War of Independence. The visitor center lets everyone learn more about the park and its wildlife in the discovery room and auditorium, while the rare breeds center has exhibitions relating to some of the animals kept there. The park also boasts a kid's play-ground, swan pond and deer park, children's corner and riding center. Check website for open hours, as they tend to change seasonally.
