Dalrymple Community Garden

Barbieston Road, Dalrymple KA6 6DY
Dalrymple Community Landscape Project
Current Openings:
1 January - 31 December, dawn - dusk (2023)
Admission by donation.
Nominated charity: Dalrymple, Skeldon and Hollybush Project 60%.
Description: Opened in September 2019, the garden, situated opposite the shops in Barbieston Road, is run by a dedicated team of volunteers; part of the Dalrymple, Skeldon and Hollybush Project. A large central lawn is surrounded by extensive areas of original meadow turf and already we have seen the appearance of wildflowers, with a concomitant increase in insect diversity, and the appearance of butterflies associated with wild grasses. Damselflies and amphibians have begun to visit the two ponds. We have planted several thousand spring bulbs including snake’s head fritillaries and camassias as well as willows and other native shrubs to provide a richer habitat.

Directions: From the north take the A77 Ayr to Stranraer. At the A713 junction take the left turn and follow the road past the hospital to the B742 junction, turn right into the village and park behind the shops in the centre of the village. From south of the A77, take the B7034 and turn right. Bus 52 from Ayr.
