KNockcushan House could open to public

GIRVAN’S Knockcushan House may or may not be open to the public in the New Year.

Girvan Community Council chairman Alec Clark said he was confident that the building would be available for the community to use by “early next year”.

Mr Clark said at least the ground floor of the building would be open to begin with and a structural survey was being undertaken on the first floor of the listed building.

However, a statement from South Ayrshire Council, which owns the building, was less upbeat.
