Statement of Interest

Brickrow Farm is part of the Auchincruive Estate. 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). Brickrow Farmhouse is essentially a traditional croft, aggrandised by 2 tiny classical wings with Venetian windows. Of note also is the unusual curved outbuilding to the N.
