It could have been our sat nav but this was a little hard to find. Easy parking once you’re there. Worth it, though, if you love AC/DC.

After a day golfing, had to go search out Kirrie's most famous former resident. A Lovely touch from the townsfolk, and a very well done statue capturing the image of ac/dc's first hit complete with bagpipes.

If you are an Ac/dc fan then you have to visit the statue for a photo opportunity. The museum has some goog memorabilia for you to check out as well.

Beautiful bronze statue of Bon Scott financed by crowd funding from all over. I lit at night and there for all to see all year round. In the car ark at the bottom of Bellies Brae. A must for all AC/DC fans.

This is brilliant work by John McKenna, who as well as being an excellent figure sculptor is also a Bon Scott fan. So this was his dream commission! There is so much care and attention to detail. Situated on the edge of a car park...More
