Visit Cumnock and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Cumnock, East Ayrshire. A town on the trunk road from Kilmarnock to Dumfries, 16 miles East of Ayr, this town is commonly referred to as Old Cumnock, although this name is more correctly attached to the parish. It is built round a square, which at one time was the churchyard; in its centre is the parish church.
Cumnock was the birthplace of Keir Hardie, the father of Scottish Socialism, a statue of whom, by Benno Schotz, stands at the Council Chamber.
Dumfries House, built in 1757 by William Adam for the 4th Earl of Dumfries, lies 2 miles to the West; it contains a collection of snuff boxes and similar articles now of antiquarian interest, the manufacture of which was once the main industry of the town.
