St John's Tower - Ayr
St John's Tower in Ayr Citadel 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.
From further north.
Cromwell was hated in Scotland almost as much as he was in Ireland, with good cause.
Looking from the south near Wellington Square with the River Ayr, Prestwick, Dundonald Hill
and Troon in the distance.
