Oswald Hall

Oswald House is a Category A-listed mansion which sits in the grounds of Auchincruive Estate, South Ayrshire, and was known as Auchincruive House when purchased in 1764 by Richard Oswald (1705-84), who made his fortune from sugar and owned plantations in the West Indies. He was also the man responsible for negotiating the Preliminary Treaty following the American War of Independence. Built by Robert Adam (1728-92), the house features fine plaster ceilings, ornamental doorcases and marble fireplaces. Oswald Hall has been extensively restored by its owner, the Scottish Agricultural College, with support from Historic Scotland the the European Regional Development Fund.
