Miller's Folly At Ayr Harbour
Miller's Folly At Ayr Harbour
The walls shown here are part of the original citadel, built by the Cromwellian army in 1652-3. The area later became known as Montgomeriestoun, which was made a Burgh of Barony in 1663. The successful Ayr businessman, John Miller, bought the property and called himself "Baron Miller". He built the small tower shown in this photograph, though nothing like it had been included in the original citadel. After completion, he seldom looked at the tower, and local people named it "Miller's Folly". (Source: "Ayr Stories", by Dane Love).
