Millside Farm

Millside farm, Galston, Ayrshire, South West ScotlandMillside Farm, Galston, owned by David and Jennifer Alexander, is situated within the rolling open Ayrshire countryside written about in the poems of Robert Burns when he lived at Mossgiel just outside the nearby village of Mauchline.

As the bard sets the scene for one of his famous “Mauchline”poems, The Holy Fair, he must have been walking in his fields with an outlook towards the north east…
“…I walked forth to view the corn…

Wi’ glorious light was glintin’…”

(Robert Burns)
