Auld Kirk of Alloway
Alloway, Ayrshire, UK
The Auld Kirk of Alloway is a ruined church in Alloway, South Ayrshire in south-western Scotland.
For followers of Robert Burns’ poetry, this church is well worth a visit and is also near to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. The church is well known for being the scene of the witches’ dance in the poem Tam o’Shanter, written in the 16th century. Burns’ father and sister are also buried in the churchyard.
Today the church is a roofless ruin; a stone built rectangle with gabled ends. The graveyard has some fine examples of carved headstones.
