This morning, I collected guests from central Glasgow and then embarked on a tour as follows:
- First to Rutland Crescent, Glasgow, a site where an ancestor lived. Now much changed with modern housing.
This morning, we departed our beach side lodgings in Ayr and then visited the town centre for shopping. Next we travelled down to Alloway to connect with Scotland’s national poet, ‘Rabbie’ Burns. Here we visited the Birth Place, Brig o’Doon, Visitor Centre and Auld Kirk.
This evening, I am focusing on Ardrossan, a sizeable town on the North Ayrshire coast and important ferry port.
Ardrossan is located on a promontory some 30 miles S.W. of Glasgow. Population is about 11,000. The name translates from its Gaelic origins as ‘cape of the little cape’.
