Burns Statue & New Cumnock Mural

Our national bard Robert Burns appears on the New Cumnock Mural standing on the banks of the Afton Water and beneath the Saltire. Our patriot William Wallace, who held lands in the upper reaches of Glen Afton also appears. The farmer at his plough and the miner and the miner’s lamp pay tribute to our farming and mining heritage.

A fine statue of Burns now stands in the garden along with the ubiqutious plough share and three plaques containing lines from his works ” A Man’s A Man For A’ That”, “To A Louse” and “O Were I On Parnassus Hill”.
