Dunskey Castle near Portpatrick





Details

Dunskey Castle is a spectacular ruin on the cliff tops a short distance from Portpatrick

The castle can be reached by climbing a flight of steps to the cliff top above Portpatrick and following a good footpath for less than a quarter mile. The footpath from Portpatrick extends for a few miles beyond Dunskey Castle as far as Knockinaam Lodge Hotel and the walk is thoroughly recommended. On the way to Knockinaam, you pass above beautiful Morroch Bay.

Dunskey Castle dates back to the 13th or 14th Century and has a gruesome history. It was plundered and burned in 1489 and was rebuilt in 1510 and extended in 1648.

Rumour has it that there is a secret tunnel from Dunskey Castle to Portpatrick.
