The demolition of the iconic Burns House in Ayr has been completed.

The project on the council-owned building, which began back in January, is believed to have cost around £1.3million, as each floor was taken away one at a time. It had most recently been used as office space until 2019. 

Future plans for the space have yet to be decided by council bosses.

A South Ayrshire Council spokesperson said: “Once the site has been completely cleared, the area will be landscaped.

“We continue to explore opportunities which will enhance and develop this important gateway into the town.”
