Skares village
Skares village
Skares is at the centre of a former Ayrshire coal mining area. The former Whitehill Colliery was just a mile to the north. Skares Row was a set of three miners' rows just outside Cumnock. When the mines closed the houses were emptied from 1949 onwards and later demolished. A new open-cast coal mine operates nearby.
