An aerial view of Portencross Castle, Farland Head, North Ayrshire
The castle is on a peninsula just north of Seamill and West Kilbride and it dates back to the 11th century but the present castle is thought to date back to the mid-14th century (1500s)

There's a corresponding structure over the water on Lesser Cumbrae on Castle Island, visible on the right of this photo, but we've no idea if it's connected. Probably not.
