Lockdown Restrictions

The latest Scottish Government lockdown announcement means that all of our venues will be closed throughout January with a few exceptions which are listed below.

Dean Castle Country Park

Dean Castle Country Park will remain open to provide an essential place for people to exercise and take advantage of the many benefits that the outdoors has for wellbeing.

The Kiosk at the Country Park will remain open daily takeaway drinks and snacks (11am - 3pm) but all other buildings in the country park including the Treehouse Café, toilets and visitor centre will be closed to the public.

Golf 

Annanhill Golf Course will remain open as outdoor non-contact sport will still be permitted subject to governing body guidelines. Open daily 9am - 2pm 

Burns Monument Centre

Whilst the Burns Monument Centre will be closed to visitors, telephone & email enquiries for local/family history services are welcome during normal working hours. Opening hours can be found by clicking on the link above. 

Libraries

Whilst our libraries are closed, you can still access thousands of ebooks, audiobooks and emagazines using the BorrowBox and RBDigital apps. Click here to read more.
