Date From

1887

Work on the extension to Ballochmyle House. Horses and carts are bringing material, while men are busy at first floor level. Also shown are sheds and material stores. Ballochmyle House was built around 1760 for Allan Whitefoord of Ballochmyle. The architect was probably William Adam. The house passed to the Alexander family after the Whitefoords lost money in the Bank of Ayr crash. Between 1886 and 1890 extensive additions were made by the Edinburgh architect Hew Montgomerie Wardrop of Wardrop & Anderson, for Sir Claud Alexander. The main contractors were D & J Milligan, Ayr. From 1940 to 1969 the house served as staff quarters for the war-time hospital established in the grounds, but has been empty since then.
