Visit Burns Hame Toun of Ayr and celebrate Burns On the Beach!

Head to the iconic pier end of Ayr beach and experience Robert Burns as you never have before with this heart-warming evening of unique light and sound attractions. Courie in and embrace the winter beach vibe as you enjoy the bonfire warmth and capture a flavour of our creative bard from the coast where he grew up.
