Ronald Rae visits his earliest sculptures at Rozelle Park Ayr

In this recent film Ronald Rae talks about his granite sculptures sited at Rozelle Park Ayr which portray The Tragic Sacrifice of Christ. The granite for the centre piece, The Deposition, came from Kirkmabreck Quarry in Creetown. This was his first monumental work. The granite for the remaining sculptures came from the Old Harbour wall in Ayr. The project was funded by Kyle and Carrick District Council and unveiled in 1979 by George Younger, then Secretary of State for Scotland.

Rozelle Park is open all year round. It offers beautiful woodland walks, two art galleries with changing exhibitions, a high quality craft shop, a coothie tearoom and of course the sculptures. Well worth a visit.
