15 September 2018

Major works are underway to restore the grade ‘A’ listed Burns Monument in Alloway. Built to commemorate Scotland’s national poet, this magnificent 70ft high Grecian-style temple is undergoing a transformation which will see it restored to its former glory.

The work includes stonework repairs, re-gilding, restoration of doors, cupola and leadwork, heating and lighting installation together with restoration of the surrounding stone and cast iron gas flares.
