Seafield House, Ayr
Racecourse Road, South Ayrshire
Seafield House in Ayr, South Ayrshire, Scotland

A few views of Seafield House in Ayr, built by Sir William Arrol in 1888 for £8,000.

Sir William was the man who designed and built the Tay Bridge, the Forth Bridge and Tower Bridge in London and the construction of Seafield House was along very similar lines with a steel frame core and a shaped stone outer shell.

The Old Racecourse Pavilion is in the foreground of this image.

The views from the top of the tower would probably be very similar to ones in these photographs, but of course from a lower altitude.

In most of these photographs the Isle of Arran can be seen in the distance, along with a few ships in the Clyde estuary.

Thanks to volunteer help and a caring owner the building is now scheduled to be restored and converted to full use.
