Overview

12 September 2021 (12 noon - 4pm) Ayrshire Designed by William Fraser, the
cottages were built 1896-98 in red sandstone to provide accommodation and
facilities for elderly residents as a living memorial to Robert Burns a
hundred years after his death. Buildings were added 1909-10, 1930-1, and 1938.
The inhabitants look out on the landscape, the village and the surroundings
that Burns wrote about. No other memorial reflects the spirit of Robert Burns
in this unique way. Photo credit: Stanley Sarsfield Facilities Disabled Access
