Highland Mary

Our logo is taken from the memorial on Castle Hill which was erected in 1896 on the 100th anniversary of the death of Robert Burns. Mary looks towards Ayrshire where she plighted her troth in ancient Scottish fashion with her beloved Rabbie. This was done by standing on the opposite banks of a burn clasping one hand each in the running water while their other hands held Mary’s bible. As long as the running water flows and the Bible holds true the love will last.
You could have your own Highland Wedding in the Marriage rooms on the ground floor of the Castle House! Contact the local Registrar’s office for details - Telephone: 44 (0)1369 704374.
