Byne Hill has had its cairn repaired, thanks to the collaborative work of the Carrick Roundtable and the Carrick resilience team.

The team spent time volunteering over the weekend to tend to the local landmark and iconic viewpoint that looks over Girvan and out towards the Ailsa Craig. The Cairn has historical significance to the area as it was built to mark the 300th anniversary of the Girvan Burgh back in 1968.

A spokesperson for the Carrick Round Table explained: “In 1982, the Carrick Round Table was formed from our mother table Girvan and District Round Table, which sadly closed many years ago.

“On Sunday, the Carrick Round Table worked alongside members of the Carrick Resilience Team to repair the Byne Hill Cairn, Girvan.

“The Cairn had been a Girvan Round Table supported project in 1968 to mark 300th Century of the Burgh of Girvan.

“Hopefully today’s repairs will help prolong the life of a well loved viewpoint and local landmark.

“If you are aged18-45 from Girvan, Carrick or beyond get in touch if you want to get involved with the lads at Round Table.”
