Craigie House - Ayr
Craigie House - Ayr
Craigie house is thought to be the work of architect John Smith. The building follows the classical line, with the central block dating to around 1730. This building was built as a replacement home by Sir Thomas Wallace of Newton Castle and was named Craigie House after Wallace's ancestral seat of Craigie Castle.

In 1782/3 the estate was purchased by William Campbell whose family retained ownership until 1940 at which time Ayr Town Council purchased the estate for the sum of 12,500.

The house has not only been a family home but was requisitioned during the Second World War by the Army, it later became a luxury restaurant, part of the Craigie teaching college, and is now used as a business centre.
