Located in the town of Alloway, South Ayrshire, Scotland, Alloway Auld Kirk dates back to the early 16th Century although a church has been at this location since at least the 13th Century.
Already a ruin in 1759 when Robert Burns was born in the town it is likely that Burns would have played in the Kirkyard as a boy and his Father and Sister are both buried here.
The main claim to fame for the Auld Kirk is that it features in Burns’ epic tale of Tam O’Shanter.
Alloway Auld Kirk is an Historic Scotland Category B Listed Building (Ref 21471).
