Fort Street, Ayr
Fort Street, Ayr
Looking north, towards the harbour, on a fine March morning. The blue building in the foreground is the Dansarena studios. It was built in the early 19th century as the New Church, which became Cathcart Church after an amalgamation in 1951. The original gateway has been retained. (Source: "Ayrshire: Discovering A County", by Dane Love). The sandstone building to the north is Ayr Academy. Fort Street takes its name from the Cromwellian fort that was built on this site in 1652-3.
