Seafield is a southern district of Ayr, Scotland. The area is home to the old racecourse of Ayr which is now used for golfing.

In 1888 Sir William Arrol M.P., the engineer who constructed the Clyde, Tay (No. 2) and Forth Bridges, had a magnificent mansion with a four-storey Italianate tower and large conservatory built as his home at the Seafield estate. Seafield House later became a maternity and children's hospital and has closed since the opening of the new Ayr Hospital.
