Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Dunure
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Dunure, Ayrshire, Scotland. I hope these might be of interest to folks with Scottish ancestry. Dunure village is located on the coast of the Firth of Clyde. Dunure Castle is the point of origin of the Kennedys of Carrick, who once ruled over much of south western Scotland and were granted the lands in 1357. In August 1563, Mary, Queen of Scots, visited the castle for three days during her third progress round the west of the country. One tradition is that the castle was built by the Danes and another states that the Mackinnons held the castle from Alexander III, as a reward for their valour at the Battle of Largs.
