Dunure Castle dates back to at least the 1200s and is built on an easily defensible outcrop overlooking the Firth of Clyde. It belonged to the Kennedy's and in time long past John Mor MacDonald Lord of the Isles was killed there after a wee bit of a rammy. Other notable visitors to the castle were Mary Queen of Scots but perhaps one of the most interesting facts is...

The Kennedy's wanted to gain control of the ground at nearby Crossraguel Abbey To these ends the Abbot of Crossraguel was kidnapped and taken to Dunure Castle thereupon was roasted on a spit over a open fire in the castle kitchens until he agreed to sign over the abbey. Not surprisingly he did so after two turns on the spit.

Ashrays are water faeries, they have whitish, almost translucent bodies, and can often be mistaken for sea ghosts.
