Ike's it's Eisenhower's...

wee country pad! Some chap called Dwight Eisenhower stayed here at Culzean Castle during the war, spending his holidays at the Castle in fact! He often trod the streets of nearby Maybole which he always considered, as he said, "his Scottish hometown". In 1946, the Freedom of the Burgh was conferred on him by the folk there and the Prez remarked after the ceremony that he would "always consider himself a true Minnieboler, if not by birth, at least by adoption".
