taken 9 years ago, near to Ayr, South Ayrshire, Great Britain

St John's Tower
St John's Tower
This is all that remains of the parish church of St John. The building was requisitioned in 1652 by Oliver Cromwell, who was constructing a citadel in Ayr. The tower, which was restored to its original style in 1924, gave a useful lookout point for the fort. The flag is for the "Homecoming" event which celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns.
