A Museums & Art Galleries in Ayrshire
The granaries on three floors which once held thousands of tonnes of grain, make excellent exhibitions spaces to tell the story of the Ayrshire rural economy of the last century. Their agricultural machinery, hand tools, photographs and documents, let the visitor step back in time. The unique collection of their clothes, both for working in and for best, are distributed throughout the galleries and room settings. The philosophy of Godliness, honest poverty, and hard work, which made them what they were, are comprehensively displayed.

The Private House Stay's Guide
Ayrshire is bordered by Dumfries and Galloway, Lanarkshire to the East and Argyll to the North. It is the 'playground' of the Western seaboard of Scotland with walks everywhere, the amazing Culzean Castle, the 'home' of Scottish horseracing at Ayr and many of Scotland's most famous golf courses. Ayrshire is the perfect area of Scotland to explore if you do not want to be too far from civilisation - the coastal views are as fine as anywhere in Scotland, the sailing clubs abundant and enthusiastic, the towns unspoilt by out-of-town shopping centres and the walking unfettered and idyllic.
