The weather has been great this week for the end of September and it’s been ideal to get out and about.
One place to visit is the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, on the south side of Ayr which has been in the top 10 of places to visit for our guests.
In addition to the museum that provides the story of Robert’s life, it houses a lovely café and a gift shop with all sorts of Scottish fayre to take home as souvenirs.
Across the large car park is a beautiful walkway with sculptures taking you to the old house which takes about 10-15 minues to saunter to. Don’t forget to have your photo taken next to the “wee” mouse!!
There is also parking at the house if you prefer not to walk.
A short walk in the opposite direction from the museum will take you to the park which houses the Burns monument and the another photo opportunity is to stand on the Brig o’ Doon itself.
Whilst there, why not treat yourself to a beautiful meal at the Brig ‘O Doon hotel?
The Burns Museum is owned and operated by the National Trust for Scotland. If you’re not a member it costs £9 per person entry but I have some vouchers which will get you a discounted entry of £6 per person.
