If you have enjoyed this abandoned video of Mount Hamilton House then please share it with others, comment and like, thanks!
Mount Hamilton was built pre-1790. The house was originally part of the Auchincruive Estate, which belonged to the Wallace family (the family of William Wallace) to 1374, then belonged to the Cathcart family (the Cathcarts having married into the Wallace family) until 1758. It was then sold to a Mr James Murray of Broughton, who owned the estate of Cally in Wigtonshire, where he was also an MP, and the County Donegal estate of the Murray Family of Broughton. James Murray left his wife, Lady Catherine Stewart, the daughter of the Sixth Earl of Galloway, who was also his cousin, for his niece, Grace Johnston, and went on to build a mansion house which he named Cally in 1765 in Gatehouse of Fleet which is now a high class hotel.
The broad shallow bowed front of Mount Hamilton, which echoes many of the country houses in Ayrshire, dominates the principal elevation and obscures much of the older house, which was originally the Auchincruive Estate factor’s house.
