Another one from the archives, taken in October 2007. Dean Castle is located in the middle of the Dean Castle country park in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. Historically the home of the Boyd family, the castle is now owned by the East Ayrshire council and hosts unique collections of arms and armour. It also has historical ties with figures of Scottish history such as Robert the Bruce and Robbie Burns.
The gardens are also home to a host of animals such as peacocks, pheasants and parakeets.
