KING ROBERT THE BRUCE’S CASTLE
Turnberry Castle was originally a stronghold of the Lords of Galloway, before being passed into the possession of the Earls of Carrick around the beginning of the 13th century. In the late 13th century the castle belonged to Marjorie, the widowed Countess of Carrick. According to medieval legend, Marjorie held the visiting knight Robert de Brus captive until he agreed to marry her. The marriage between Marjorie and Robert in 1271 conveyed to him both the castle and the earldom. Their first son, also named Robert, went on to become "Robert the Bruce", the King of Scots. The ruins of the castle are located between the 9th and 10th holes of the Championship Ailsa course. In 1873, a lighthouse was built on this site by the family of acclaimed author, Robert Louis Stevenson. The ruins are still visible and the lighthouse is now a luxurious two bedroom suites and halfway house. During your stay at Trump Turnberry, it is well worth a walk out to this point on the golf course to absorb some of the authentic history that surrounds the resort.
