Cassillis House
Cassillis House
Located close to the River Doon, near Dalrymple, Cassillis House is the setting for the famous ballad "Johnnie Faa" - LinkExternal link
Before her marriage to the powerful chief of the Kennedys, the countess had loved a young knight, Sir John Fall. She eloped with him, disguised as the gypsy, "Johnnie Faa". The Earl brought them back and made her watch the gypsy band and her disguised lover being hanged from the Dule Tree in front of Cassillis House. The Earl imprisoned the Countess for life in his town house, Maybole Castle NS3010 : The Countess's Window. He then divorced her and remarried. No human rights in those days!
