Old Photograph Belmont Terrace Maybole Scotland
Old photograph of vintage cars on Belmont Terrace in Maybole in South Ayrshire, Scotland. This Scottish town is situated 9 miles south of Ayr and 50 miles South West of Glasgow by the Glasgow and South Western Railway. Maybole is an ancient place, having received a charter from Donnchadh, Earl of Carrick in 1193. In 1516 it was made a burgh of regality, but for generations it remained under the subjection of the Kennedys, afterwards Earls of Cassillis and, later, Marquesses of Ailsa, the most powerful family in Ayrshire. The current Marquess of Ailsa lives at Cassillis House, just outside Maybole. The ancestral seat of the Marquesses of Ailsa is Culzean Castle.
