NOTES: This is one of the images taken for 'Manplan 3: Town Workshop' in Architectural Review, vol. 146, 1969 Nov. Built in 1797-1802 for the Montgomery Earls of Eglinton on the site of 16th century stronghold, this castellated mansion was abandoned in 1925 and deroofed in 1926. In the 1970s what remained of the structure was made safe by demolishing all but a wing facade and a single tower. This area became part of Irvine New Town, designated in 1965.
