Tragic O’Hara┬áis the artist behind the mural on the gable end at the top of King Street. Tragic got all the ideas from locals. You’ll spot fish, oysters, tattie scones, curling stones, Jim Hamilton, Belted Galloways and more. The cup o’ kindness represents a shared value among locals. Kindness. The window in the gable end lets us peek into the town’s emerging art hub – a temporary home for all things creative till the George Hotel is renewed.

The Black Stank is a burn that runs through the town. It ran white at one point with milk from the creamery. We’ll hear how we can restore the banks of the burn, keep the town safe from flooding in our changing climate and restore some of that wild land as a sanctuary for locals and wildlife to enjoy.
