St John's Tower, Ayr, South Ayrshire, Scotland

St John’s Tower is a 15th century addition to the original 1300 Kirk of Ayr.

It was here that the Parliament and nobility of Scotland passed the crown to Robert Bruce.

The tower formed a significant part of the Ayr Citadel which was built by Oliver Cromwell to enable him to control this part of Scotland.

Cromwell was hated in Scotland almost as much as he was in Ireland, with good cause.
