Fort Street Tile Works, Ayr, Ayrshire.

Robert Boyle of the Drongan Pottery operated a Tilework producing drain tiles at Fort Street in Ayr, he is also listed as a manufacturer of pottery and bricks. The works were located near the harbour. Source Matthew Yuill. (Note – SBH – I can see Fort Street is indeed situated next to the harbour. I suspect that Boyles premises here may well be a storage  or shipping depot rather than a tile manufactory or the manufactory was disused by the 1857 OS map.)
