Robert Burns

The poetry of Robert Burns is recited the world over but experiencing the landscape and seeing the people of the south west as they go about their daily lives lends the Bard’s work a whole new dimension. Visit Ellisland, Robert Burns’ home for three of his most productive years. Then follow his trail to nearby Dumfries where he wrote, drank, loved and is buried. The Globe public house, where he passed many evenings, is still near the town centre as is the Theatre Royal where Burns was once arrested for singing the Marseillaise at the time of the French Revolution. The great man’s mausoleum is in St Michael’s Kirkyard… Listen, his songs and love poetry are still in the air.

  • Robert Burns’ Ellisland Museum and Farm

    Welcome to Ellisland Museum and Farm. From 1788-1791, Ellisland Farm was the rural home of National Bard Robert Burns. He built the house for his family. Its fabulous location by the river Nith inspired him to write some of his most famous poems.

    Today visitors can explore Burns’ farmhouse; the kitchen where meals were shared, his spence where genius was ignited. Then discover more about his life, work, and the setting that brought us Tam o’ Shanter, Banks O’ Doon and Auld Lang Syne.
