Holmston House
Holmston House
Holmston House started as the Kyle Combination Poorhouse, opening in 1860 to accommodate and care for 150 destitute people. The H-shaped layout was typical of 19th century poorhouse design. It was renovated in 1906 to deal with serious overcrowding and poor standards of welfare. Holmston House became the headquarters of the Social Work Department. South Ayrshire Council is still trying to sell the building off.
