Following the Scottish Government's announcement that restrictions are expected to relax, some of our staffed sites are set to reopen on Friday 30 April. Tickets available soon.



Explore the ruined collegiate chapel of St Mary, built next to a medieval parish church.

The chapel was founded in 1371 by Sir John Kennedy of Dunure. In 1382 a college of priests was established here to pray for Sir John, his family and ancestors.

In its day, the kirk was a grand building, and some fine architectural touches can still be seen in its ruinous state.
