Maybole Collegiate Church

[Maybole Collegiate Church]

The roofless ruin of Maybole Collegiate Church lies slightly downhill from the main road through Maybole town centre. A padlock usually prevents access, but those in the know can pick up the key from Crossraguel Abbey, a couple of miles down the road. The chapel dates to 1371 and was founded by Sir John Kennedy of nearby Dunure, who soon established a college of priests to pray for himself and his family. A few interesting architectural features remain, including the Kennedy coat of arms above the burial aisle, though we were sad to see quite a lot of litter around too. Maybole itself doesn't warrant a separate page, but look out for the imposing town hall and castle as you drive through.
