Built about the middle of the sixteenth century, the Castle is the oldest inhabited house in the town. It was the town house owned by the Earls of Cassillis, the Kennedys, who spent most of the winter months in Maybole in those days. It was also the largest and finest of the twenty-eight lairds’ houses which were written about by Abercrummie in 1686.
