Leave Glentrool and as we have a few hours to kill we decide to do a bit of the Rabbie Burns tour. First stop is Souter Johnnies Cottage in Kirkoswald. He was a shoemaker immortalised by the Scottish Bard in Tam o’Shanter and the tiny thatched cottage and garden are run by the SNT as a craft gallery.
Next stop on our tour is the Robert Burns museum and cottage and Brig o’Doon in Alloway. We find out he is not only the national poet of Scotland, he also couldn’t keep it in his pants and although he died at 37, he’d had 12 children to 4 women!
Onto a campsite next door to Culzean Castle for a quiet night in. Great view of the Isle of Arran.
