The History of Westburn House

Westburn House dates back, we believe, to about 1901 when in common with a number of properties around the Ayr, Prestwick and Troon areas it was built in a style reminiscent of a mock-Tudor mansion by Dundas Hamilton.

Surrounded by St Cuthbert Golf Club, Westburn House had extensive gardens, a pond, tennis courts and domestic staff to attend to the needs of Mr Hamliton and his family.

The Tulloch family were the third owners of Westburn and rented the building to the USAAF 1403rd Base Unit in September 1943 under the command of Station 3, Air Transport Command. After the war, the Tullochs and their young family (some of whom you can see below making a return visit in November 2009) returned briefly to the house until moving c1950. Since then, Westburn House has been used as a billet for Air Traffic Controllers working at Redbrae (now levelled) and as a headquarters for successive local companies until being bought by Bermar Properties (Scotland) Ltd in July 2009. We have renovated and lovingly restored the character of the original house whilst creating the perfect modern working environment for professional business start-ups in the local area, with all rooms featuring CAT5 / WiFi throughout the property.

Throughout the communal areas and rooms of Westburn House you will find copies of some of these family photos explaining the character of the building to visitors and tenants alike.
