Antiquarians hear of work being done to research the history of Ardrossan Castle

A visit from three members of the Ardrossan Castle Heritage Society generated an audience of more than 60 Arran Antiquarians and visitors, who were very keen to learn more.

Pat, Martin and George, suitably attired in their heritage society shirts, respectively introduced the talk, outlined the history of the castle and spoke about the ruins of the old church on Castle Hill.
