Dunimarle Castle is located 1 km west of the centre of the village of Culross in Fife, Scotland. The name 'Dunimarle' means 'castle by the sea', although the original name of the estate was 'Castlehill'.
The original castle is now a ruin, but adjacent to it stands an 18th-century building, borrowing its name, constructed by the Erskine family. The house was rebuilt by R & R Dickson in 1839. It has a good library. Until recently it had some fine art which is now found on temporary loan to the National Galleries museum at Duff House near Banff North East Scotland.
From 1575, Dunimarle Castle had a coal mine in operation run by Sir George Bruce. The mine had a tunnel that led down to the nearby River Forth, which is some 30 meters below, this was so that the coal could be loaded onto ships. The mine was abandoned in the early 17th century and the tunnel filled in.
