‘A burgh of barony’

John R Hume charts the history of the Church in Tarbolton.


THE parish of Tarbolton is in central Ayrshire, in the area known as Kyle, sandwiched between Cunninghame to the north and Carrick to the south.

The village of Tarbolton is roughly half-way between Kilmarnock and Ayr. There are the remains of a ‘motte and bailey’ earthwork castle in the centre of the village, evidence that it was the centre of a ‘barony’ founded during the 12th century as part of the introduction of the feudal system in lowland Scotland.
