Over 10,000 have viewed the iconic paintings so far

Thousands of people have flocked to see the landmark Alexander Goudie Tam o' Shanter exhibition in Alloway.

In the last six weeks over 10,000 people have marvelled at the 54 larger than life paintings which are on display at Rozelle House and the Maclaurin Art Gallery. The free exhibition runs until Sunday 12 March, so you still have time to catch it.

This is only the second time in their history that all of Goudie's celebrated paintings in the South Ayrshire Council collection have been on public display.

Councillor Bill Grant, Economic Development, Tourism and Leisure Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "These paintings are of national importance and there really is nothing else like them in the world. They bring to life this famous poem in vibrant colour and often comic detail and I would encourage anyone who has not seen them to go along. Nobody knows when the full collection will be on display again, so don't miss out."
