Culture in South Ayrshire
From the grandeur of
Culzean Castle to the 13th Century simplicity of Crossraguel Abbey, South Ayrshire contains
a rich tapestry of historic architecture. This legacy is complemented by a fine
collection of works by Scottish Colourists and the stunning paintings of Alexander Goudie, together with a wide range of
contemporary culture like the
Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra,
Burns Festival, and much more.
South Ayrshire also has important connections with Scotland's National Bard, Robert
Burns, who was born in Alloway, close to
Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, in Alloway, the Ayrshire town where
Robert Burns was born, offers a truly unique encounter with Scotland's favourite
son. The famous Burns Cottage is also part of the museum and sits close to Brig
O'Doon and the spooky Alloway Kirk.
From arts and crafts to the Holy Fair, South Ayrshire provides many local events that
will keep you entertained.
