Newmilns Tower, East Ayrshire
This 17th century Tower House is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, a designation which complicated this project to bring the roofless, near derelict structure back into use as a single house. The Tower is believed to have been built as a keep or strong house for the Campbells of Loudoun when Loudoun Castle had been sacked in a retaliation raid by the Kennedys of Dunure. The building has served as a prison for covenanters and in its last years before restoration housed the Newmilns Town Band.
The project included detailed archaeological investigations, structural repairs, fitting out the house and landscaping to provide a modern interpretation of a 17th century garden.
Works were undertaken between 1994 and 1996 with funding from the Architectural Heritage Fund, Scottish Development Agency, Scottish Department, Historic Scotland and Enterprise Ayrshire.
On completion the house was sold as a private dwelling.
