Glaisnock House, Sheila McClymont, 30 10 2005.
When I was attending Tarbolton Secondary in the 1950s, some of the boys left to attend Glaisnock when it opened as a rural education school. Also, a Mr Douglas left as well to teach there. I always wondered what it was like at the new school.

I have heard that Dalquharran Castle outside the village of Dailly was used to accommodate children from the cities durng World War Two to protect them from German bombings. Hopefully someone will be able to give more information on this subject.

Is it true that the Arthur Memorial UF Church, which sits on the site of Cumnock Castle, Castle Hill, Castle, New Cumnock, Ayrshire, is the only building designed by the Welsh architect Beddoe-Rees outside of Wales?

The castle was held by Patrick Blackbeard Dunbar in 1296 and Edward II spent more than a week at the Castle in August 1307. Cheers, Geoff.
