The ruined tower house, was built by Clan Hamilton to protect the area from King Felipe II of Spain in the 16th century. In the early 15th century Ailsa Craig was owned by the monks of Crossraguel Abbey, and was owned by the Kennedy family. The title Marquess of Ailsa was created for Archibald Kennedy, the 12th Earl of Cassillis, in 1831.
