Substantial ruin now fully restored as a private residence on slope of Carrick Hills

of Allan Stewart, Commendator of Crossraguel Abbey, by the Cassillis Family in their
attempt to seize the Abbey Lands. Mary Queen of Scots also stayed three nights here.
Picnic area with ample parking.
Optical illusion created so that car appears to be going uphill when it is in fact
