Illuminight with Lidl

Dean Castle Country Park - Kilmarnock

Discover new sights and sounds at Dean Castle Country Park this Autumn at Illuminight with Lidl. 

The trail starts and ends at the main entrance off Dean Road by the new visitor centre. The route is approximately 1.5 kilometres and involves being outdoors for approximately one and a half hours.

Visitors should begin the trail at the start time stated on their ticket. Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable time slot can be found in another session.

Please note: Illuminight with Lidl is an all outdoor, evening event in Scotland. Think practical and wear appropriate clothing and footwear for a Scottish winter! Fingers crossed for good weather but as we know, Scottish weather can change hourly with a mix of crisp winter nights or showers. Layering is best and something waterproof is advisable, as is sturdy footwear.

Dean Castle Country Park is accessible to those with reduced mobility and specific needs. Please note, whilst the event and route through the grounds is fully accessible, certain areas are sloped and uneven which may require assistance for wheelchair users or those with infants in pushchairs.

At this point there are no plans for strobe lighting at the event. However, those with a light sensitivity should be aware that there may be areas where there will be flickering or flashing lights at low intensity.

Dean Castle will be in the midst of ongoing renovations and will remain closed throughout the event.
