The trail can be completed anytime during the castle opening hours as it does require access to the ruins. However, if you are using the car park, then please check what times the gates close at!

The toilet facilites at the park may be closed outwith car park hours and the small cafe at the harbour will also be shut outside normal hours. However, the Dunure Inn will be open but always worth checking before hand if you wish to combine the trail with enjoying some refreshments or a meal there!
