Dunure Harbour, Ayrshire

Dunure Harbour, Ayrshire, Scotland

 
This evening, I am focusing on the pleasant coastal village of Dunure in Ayrshire.
 
The name is probably derived from Dun=fort and ure= yew tree.
 
Dunure is close to Ayr  and on the northern tip of Culzean Bay. From here can be viewed, looking west,  the Isle of Arran, Kintyre Peninsula and Ailsa Craig.
 
Dunure has a pleasant harbour, is welcoming to visitors and is close to nearby Alloway  (Burns Country), Culzean Castle  and Turnberry. At Dunure is a significant castle  parts of which date from the 12th century.
