  • Interactive and highly intetesting giving excellent insight to Robert Burns. I was surprised by the number of original exhibits too. Very good cafe as well.
  • Went to their Alloween event, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am now planning on going to more of their events
  • Awesome set up great for families. Tour around the cottage was extremely good, great knowledge and very well presented.
  • Really lovely area, especially if you visit brig o' doon. View from tower in the gardens is enchanting. And handy for Ayrshire coast (irvine, troon and ayr beaches)
  • Great for all things Burns. Easy parking and short walk to other locations. Even an extended golf buggy if walking is a problem with then a short walk to Burns Cottage.
