The Bachelors' Club
Tarbolton, South Ayrshire

The Bachelors' Club, Tarbolton, South Ayrshire

This is the only angle that shows the property AND the garden to the left of it.

From further left the house gets in the way and further to the right the grey roof of the shop intrudes in the bottom right.

The club was formed as a debating society by Robert Burns in 1780.
It's also where he went for dancing lessons.

He used to travel to it from his then home at Lochlea Farm just off the road to Mauchline, about 2 miles away to the north-east as the crow flies.

It's not hard to imagine what he must have been like making his way home on unpaved muddy and rutted roads in the pitch dark over an exposed hillside after a heavy drinking session.

A slightly wider view and showing not only the Bachelors' Club in Sandgate Street but also the Activity Centre and Tarbolton Primary School in the near and middle distance.

More photos can be seen at the Tarbolton Centre page where there are several wider views of the area.

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.
