New Cumnock Timeline and Discovery Quiz

A rich heritage waiting to be discovered and enjoyed…

The East Ayrshire town of New Cumnock has a long and interesting history, with clear links to subjects as varied as Robert Burns, the Covenanters and junior football. This interactive, the New Cumnock Timeline and Discovery Quiz, has focussed on key aspects of this heritage, and was developed by local historians and schoolchildren.

Just click on the images on the front page to go to the Timeline - including major events in New Cumnock's history, and 3 trails based on the kirkyard of the Auld Kirk. You can find out more about the soldiers, ministers and other locally important families associated with it or who are buried there. And after you've explored these 'Auld Kirkyard Trails' why not try the Discovery Quiz to see what you have learned? Good luck!
