Statement of Interest

B Group with 6-9 (Inclusive Nos) and 10-14 (Inclusive Nos) Alloway Place (see separate list descriptions). South of Wellington Square, there was to be a proposed Alloway Square (as shown on John Wood's Plan of Ayr, 1818) named after David Cathcart, Lord Alloway, who owned the land on which it was to be built, but only the terraced houses in Alloway Place were realised.
