Ayr: Tower of St John's

11 September 2022

Ayrshire

In Person

Remaining part of the original parish church of Ayr. The church, in its time the largest in Ayrshire, was cruciform in shape and the tower was perhaps added in the 14th century. In 1315 Robert the Bruce convened the Scottish Parliament in the church. Restored by J K Hunter for the 3rd Marquess of Bute in 1913-14. A landmark to seamen, it offers magnificent panoramic views.

For Doors Open Days you enjoy guided tours of the tower.
