The Barns of Ayr was, according to Blind Harry in The Wallace, a site located at Ayr, Scotland, which was used as English military barracks.[1] The barns was where the slaying of a number of Scottish barons of Ayrshire, including Sir Reginald Crawford Sheriff of Ayr, Sir Bryce Blair of Blair, Sir Neil Montgomerie of Cassillis, Crystal of Seton, and Sir Hugh Montgomerie, by hanging in 1297 was undertaken.[2] In revenge, William Wallace burned the barracks with the English inside.[1]
