Greenan Castle


This view shows the castle of Grenand, as it appears on the road from Ayr to Maybole. The following description is given of this castle, in Mr. McFarlan's MS. collection: CASTLE of Grenand and the Cave. The Grenand is a high house upon the top of a rock hanging over upon the sea, with some lower new work, lately added to it, but never finished; it is too open to the cold and moisture arising from the sea to be a desirable habitation, and has been designed to be the owner's security against a surprise, rather than a constant residence. It is within the parish of Maybole.


THIS view was drawn A. D. 1785.
