BURNS MEMORIAL AND COTTAGES MAUCHLINE AYRSHIRE SCOTLAND.
Burns memorial and cottages Mauchline Ayrshire Scotland taken recently by my very capable photographer.
The graphic can be clicked on for a much larger image and a better view. Burns cottages were built mainly for retired workers from Mauchline Pit which used to be situated about 1 mile from this monument. The cottages inside were at the time miles in front of local houses because they were warm and cosy with usually only one bedroom.
For those expected to visit during the Homecoming Scotland 2009 year visitors can expect a fascinating inside look at the life and times of Robert Burns. One can spend hours in the monument to Scotlands Son Robert Burns and although in only three floors, each floor is crammed with information and Burns antiquities and memorabilia from poems to actual items that Robert Burns owned.
Anyone visiting Mauchline on the Burns trail cannot help but be impressed when they view the history about Burns within the monument at Mauchline.
