    The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

    Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
    How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
    How can ye chant, ye little birds,
    And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
    Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
    That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
    Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
    Departed, never to return.

    Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
    To see the rose and woodbine twine;
    And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
    And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
    Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
    Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
    And my fause lover stole my rose,
    But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
