The story of our namesake: Ballantrae, Scotland

Seaside village of Ballantrae with island of Ailsa Craig rising in the distance.

Developer MI Homes looked to the centuries-old communities of southwestern Scotland in naming our community, its villages and streets. Articles on the namings and their history appeared in the January-March 2013 edition of our community newsletter, The Communicator.

Here are some of the sources used in researching those articles. They are linked below for those interested in further exploration of the history and tales of “the other Ballantrae.”
