Barnweil Tower

Another photograph from Saturday, taken between Tarbolton and Symington. It was taken about 30 minutes before those at Prestwick posted on the previous two days. Changeable weather!

Barnweil Tower is another William Wallace monument. Local legend has it that the name came from Wallace standing at that spot watching English soldiers being burned in the Barns O'Ayr and saying "The barns burn weil". In fact the name was in use long before Wallace's time.
