It was the main location for the film The Match, where two rival pubs played against each other in an annual football match as a challenge. However, since the village has only one pub, a house was used as a pub for filming.
Local attractions include:
- Blairquhan House, open to visitors in spring and summer, was the historic home of the Hunter-Blair Baronets.
- Tairlaw Linn, a local waterfall.
Community public toilets
The village's public toilets were closed by South Ayrshire Council in 2008 and subsequently re-opened under the management of the village community. Donations are invited to cover the £3,500 annual running costs.
