Private Housing, Sorn
Private Housing, Sorn
Small residential development of private houses of differing styles dating from the latter part of the 20th century. The thickly wooded slopes of the Ayr valley around Sorn are due to the planning and land management skills of a Dowager Duchess who on her marriage came to live in Sorn Castle. On arriving in the area from her father's estate in southern England, she found the valley barren,treeless and uninspiring and set out to plant trees and hedges and so provide shelter and improve the scenery of the area.
