The statue of Robert Burns
Town Moor, Irvine, North Ayrshire
This is the statue of Robert Burns - poet - on the north bank of the River Irvine just to the
south of the Town Moor.
It faces south towards Alloway where Burns was born. The trees inside the fencing have now been removed because
apparently “the wind-swept location prevents proper growth”. As it did for the trees a few yards away.
Now retaken, as promised. The story was that there were 21 trees because they were planted to celebrate the 21st
anniversary of the creation of Irvine New Town.
Now there are none, as you can see.
Of the same area, but this is a vertical view.
From the same position but using a longer lens to show more detail.
