Adamton House (also known as Adamtoun, Edemstone, Adamston)4166

Prestwick, Scotland

Brief Description

The former estate of Adamton House is cut through by the A77 on its western edge. The late 19th-century sandstone house sits on a series of grass banks with ornate balustrades and steps.

History

The designed landscape at Adamton House was laid out during the early-18th century and included two woods. By the mid-19th century it had become more compact. A new house was built in the 1880s by George Alexander Baird. The landscape has since been degraded due to road development and the use of the site by the United States Airforce and British Aerospace. The house has recently been converted for use as a hotel.
