What says Chalmers ? "

"An old edifice, the relic of the ancient
"priory, and the residence in Burn's days of Mr.
"Hamilton, called Mauchline Castle, and situated near the church, was the
"Scene of some of his amours, and contains a room in which he wrote his very
"profane parody called "the Calf." Fullartons Gazetteer.

"The church, forming part of the original Priory, it is supposed,
and with which the Tower at Mauchline is believed to have been connected, was
situated in the middle of the town, having the Church yard around it."
"Now that the Church has been removed, the Tower of Mauchline,
as it is called, may be the only remains of the ancient Priory"
