About Ayr

On April 26, 1315, the first Parliament of Scotland was held in Ayr by Robert The Bruce at St.John's Tower by the sea. It was once known as 'Inverair/Inverayr' and this usage is still retained in the Scottish Gaelic form of the name Inbhir Air. Later, during Cromwellian times, the town was used as a base and fortress for some of his men. Cromwell built a huge wall around certain areas of the town, most of which can still be seen today. St John's Tower was originally part of a massive church, but the church was knocked down, and the tower used to practise on; it is now protected by the "Friends Of Saint Johns Tower" (FROST) residents of the nearby "Fort Area".
