The new Golf Clubhouse with a Cafe was built between the Belleisle and Seafield golf courses in about 2016, 100 yards to the right of the Hotel in the image above, with the Cafe having views over Seafield Golf Course. Belleisle Park visitors are welcome to use the Cafe.

Belleisle Summer House was rebuilt in 2015/2016, almost identical to the original. This is a photo of the Old Building, new photos should be added this year as all the work around the Building should now be finnished.

Belleisle House and Gardens looks are attributed to the Hamiltons of Pinmore, who took over the estate in the late 1700s. They acquired more land for the Estate, and extended the Mansion House.

Ayr Burgh Council bought the Estate in 1926 for £25,000, opening the Grounds to the public free of charge soon after.

The Walled Garden is a great quiet spot to relax in sunny days. This is a good example of a Walled Garden in a typical large Country House Estate, although they were originally built to grow vegetables and fruit.

This was a popular place for Weddings up till the Hotel closed. The Gardens were a great spot for Wedding Photos.
