Plans to turn Ardrossan Castle into a tourist attraction 'to draw people into the town' emerged this week.
The castle has suffered from severe damage over the years by adverse weather and acts of vandalism. A report has stated that the structure is on the verge of collapse and that £103,000 would be required to make the castle safe.
There is £1.5m in North Ayrshire's regional repairs fund and this could provide a possible source of funding for the emergency work needed on the castle. North Ayrshire are to prepare a report to explore how the castle could become part of the heritage of the town and how it can be best utilised as a resource for education and tourism.Source: Ardrossan Herald 30 March 2012
