The Burns Statue Square drill hall is a military installation in Ayr.

HistoryEdit

The building was designed by James Archibald Morris as the headquarters of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion the Royal Scots Fusiliers and was completed in 1901.[1] This unit became the 5th Battalion the Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1908.[1] The building was sold by auction by the War Office, as being surplus to requirements, in 1909.[1][2] The building became a solicitor's office and has since been converted for retail use.[3]
