Mauchline is a small town 10 miles east of Ayr and is known for its connections with Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns.
Robert Burns lived here with his wife Jean Armour, who came from Mauchline, and there is a museum where they lived. The National Burns Memorial Tower stands to the north west of the town. Another Burns-themed sight is Poosie Nansie's tavern, associated with Burn's poem The Jolly Beggars.
The upland town of Mauchline also boasts a bank, library, golf course and a choice of public houses and hotels.
