Sir Reginald de Craufurd, 1st Sheriff of Ayrshire.
Hugh Craufurd, 2nd Sheriff of Ayrshire.
He inherited Loudoun, Ayrshire.
He was granted Crosbie, Ayrshire, in 1226.
It was claimed that it was his son (also Hugh) who was granted Crosbie after the Battle of Largs in 1263, but [Burkes Peerage] says it was granted earlier to the father in 1226.
He had issue:
Loudoun Castle is an
early 19th century building
on the site of the earlier Craufurd castle.
It is thought to incorporate
a 15th century keep.
The castle burnt down 1941 and is now a ruin.
The estate is now an amusement park called "Loudoun Castle".
