Mid 19th century. Single chambered, rectangular-plan ice house, with vaulted ceiling at ground level, partly collapsed; small rectangular-plan enclosure adjoining; enclosing walls survive.
A-Group with East Lodge, Gibbsyard, Hanging Garden, Oswald Hall, Oswald's Temple, Walled Garden, West Lodge and Wilson Hall (see separate listings). The Auchincruive Estate was owned by the Wallace family in the 13th century. There were a variety of owners until the 18th century when James Murray of Broughton sold it to Richard Oswald, entrepreneur and merchant, in 1764. The estate remained in the Oswald family until 1925, when they sold it to a local farmer John M Hannah, who gifted it to the West of Scotland Agricultural College in 1927, under whose ownership it remains (1999). The original formal landscape at Auchincruive dates from the 18th century, however this is now vastly reduced and was remodelled circa 1830. On the basis of map evidence, as second ice house of similar design was originally adjacent to this one.
