Abstract

The county of Ayrshire provided a lucrative source of commissions for the architects of Mackintosh's day, drawing on local firms and on significant names from Edinburgh and Glasgow. This chapter provides a brief introduction to the building of country houses in the area between 1890 and 1914. Since Ayrshire represents a large and varied slice of Scottish topography and social life, the country houses erected in that period are not only interesting for their own sakes, but also can be used as a case study of relevance to the understanding of Scottish late Victorian and Edwardian taste in country-house architecture as a whole. 1
