Ecclesiastical building no longer in use as such. Good example of late 18th century church architecture, enlivened by the Art Nouveau additions of James Morris. Alongside architectural work, including that in Savoy Croft and Racecourse Road, Morris wrote the books "The Brig of Ayr and Something of its Story" in 1912 and "The Auld Toon O'Ayr" in 1928, both published by the Ayr publishers Stephen and Pollock, extolling the town's architectural highlights.
