Craigengillan House

Craigengillan House lies betwenn the North end of Loch Doon and Dalmellington.

The Estate has been in existence since 1611, owned by the McAdam family, original family surname MacGregor, although the house was substantially redesigned in 1765 and has been modified several times since.

Possibly one of the most notable members of the family was John {Tar} McAdam, due to his work on road construction.

The fact that this estate has been around for such a long period of time seems mind-boggling! It certainly looks like a grand place! And, it gives a lot of credence to the expression that "a man's home is his castle"!
