Photographer's Note

Dunure Castle, situated on the South Ayrshire coast.
Like many other scottish castles, this has a turbulent history. Built in the 13th century, eventual stronghold of the Kennedy Clan [ the Scottish one]
a silent [but not spared] witness to battles and to gory deeds[ such as the "roasting" on fire of an opponent by one of its erstwhile owners, Gilbert Kennedy ]. The victim seemingly survived the ordeal but was unable to walk again. The Culprit went on to perform other suitable crimes.
One of its other claims to fame seems to be the visit of Mary , Queen of Scots for 3 days from August 1563, and must have certainly spent at least some of her time enjoying the wonderful Coastal scenery.
