This is the statue of Burns on the north bank of the River Irvine just to the south of the Town Moor.
It faces south towards Alloway where Burns was born. The trees inside the fencing have now been removed because apparently “they won't grow properly in the wind-swept location”.
Either way it's now necessary to retake the photographs to show an accurate view.
Now retaken, as promised. It's said that there were 21 trees because they were planted to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the creation of Irvine New Town.
Now there aren't any, as you can see.
Of the same area, but this is a vertical view.
From the same position but using a longer lens to show more detail.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
