Dunure is a fishing village which dates back to the early 19th century, found on the coast of South Ayrshire, 5 miles north west of Maybole.
The small fishing village of Dunure is home to many places of interest including Dunure Castle where the roasting of Alan Stewert took place. Today this ruin has a picnic area and car park facilities, and nearby is Kennedy Park with a skate park, children’s play area and toilets.
One of the first locations used for Outlander season 3 filming, Dunure was used several times. The best known is the harbour which was transformed in to the port where Jamie and Claire once again meet Jared, and board the Artemis for their journey to Jamaica. However, the beach and castle next to the harbour, were used for the scenes where Claire and Jamie watch young Ian swim out to Silkies’ Island. And the surrounding countryside was also believed to have been used for scenes set near Ardsmuir prison.
The village is also home to Dunure Inn, which offers accommodation and a menu serving a variety of dishes.
Just to the south of the village is the Electric Brae, an optical illusion where your car looks as if it is going uphill when actually, it is rolling down hill.
