I note the wheelie bins still say Grants. To-day I walked to West Kilbride and visited the museum Its well worth a visit it has a large collection of wild birds eggs which of course was from the bad old days. Some remarkable photographs one in particular of a dead relative posed as though she were still alive. Even had a tawse and although the curator put her hands out I demonstrated it on myself. A lot of interesting clothes and I would encourage anyone to pay it a visit. I was even invited back and you don't have to walk there as there is plenty of public transport.

Trying best as I can to replace images hijacked by Photo - bucket. So in relation to the Grant Arms I've re-uploaded to one of the late Bobbydarg's posts a couple of really old photos of the Grants given to him by the previous owner, Mary. See topic: https://www.threetowners.net/forum/view ... 749#p71749

Hughie, the second photo that Robert posted of the pub there almost had me fooled into thinking I was looking at two separate buildings altogether, before realising that when it was the 'Burns Tavern' it had some structural changes done to the roof/attic at some point - effectively turning that space into a separate floor above the pub itself.

Me too. I didn't realise it was the same building.

Note the width of the pavement in front of the Burns Tavern, and the width now
