The Exhibition for  2014 is: 


The Gentle Touch

Women of Carsphairn"

The Exhibition this year is an amalgam of the old and the new.   This is because in 1997 the Carsphairn Heritage Group presented an exhibition called "Petticoat Rule."   Our presentation in 2014 continues to explore this theme, with further tales and reminiscences, both ancient and modern, about the lives of the women in the village and near environs of Carsphairn.

Members of the group took great delight in unearthing and amassing artefacts, pictures and the written word.   We hope you will enjoy the experience we offer in, "Petticoat Tales, The Gentle Touch, Women of Carsphairn."


Directions:  Carsphairn is located on the A713, 25 miles south of Ayr and 23 miles north of Castle Douglas, South West Scotland.   The Heritage Centre is located on the main road (A713) at the north end of the village.  There is a car park, toilet facilities and a picnic area.  Admission by donation.
