That's the A76 just behind the monument - the main trunk road from Kilmarnock to Dumfries.

These are/were the Jean Armour Burns Houses, run by the Association of Glasgow Burns Clubs in memory of Jean Armour, Robert Burns' wife.

They're built on land that was a part of Mossgiel Farm, which Burns worked for a few years as a tenant farmer.

These have now been demolished and replaced with some brand new cottages a few yards away. Photos later.
