About Rozelle

Popular with visitors and locals, the picturesque Rozelle Park has something for everyone. If you are looking for culture and heritage or walking trails that are accessible for all ages and abilities, or just to relax with a coffee and a view of the tree lined park. Close to the birthplace of Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns, Rozelle is the perfect day out when visiting the area. 

Rozelle House Museum and Galleries

The Georgian mansion Rozelle House is now a museum and gallery with a tearoom in the lower ground of the house with patio dining. The house displays objects, artefacts and works of art from the South Ayrshire Council collections, as well as offering a changing programme of exhibitions, events and activities. The ground floor is home to Henry Moore’s bronze sculpture ‘Working Model for Draped Reclining Figure’. In the upper floor of the house you will find the permanent exhibition The Goudie Collection – A Tale of Tam o’ Shanter a series of paintings by Artist Alexander Goudie. 

The Maclaurin Art Gallery is situated in old stable block and servants quarters that adjoin Rozelle House. The contemporary art gallery has a diverse calendar of exhibitions and related activities throughout the year.

Sculptures and Trails

Story Stroll

Exploring the woodland and park you will come across willow sculpture’s by artist David Powell. The newest addition is Story Stroll,  a self led trail where you will encounter some recognisable characters from your favourite stories, all with a Scottish link. Say hello to the swans and ducks as you wander around the ponds surrounded by an extensive collection horticultural species.

Remembrance Woodland
