Robert Burns Statue - Irvine, North Ayrshire
This is the statue of Burns 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 “they won't
grow properly in the wind-swept location”.
Either way it's now necessary to retake the photographs to show
an accurate view.
Over the years, the trees have been removed.
Now retaken, as promised. It's said that there were 21 trees because
they were planted to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the creation
of Irvine New Town.
Now there aren't any, as you can see.
