The Byre

 

The original farmhouse on the left is where the previous owners David and Agnes Cullie resided. It may have been used as a bothy for farm workers. It is used for set pieces displaying - The Cotter's Saturday Night - Burns and the Excise - Burns the Farmer.

The Byre now displays Dairying equipment on the left. On the right are byre stalls for cattle, Horse Harness and various hand tools. On the rafter is Tumblin' Tam. Robert Burns introduced the Ayrshire cows and dairying procedure to this area. Have a go at milking!
