Under the thatched roof of this humble-looking, 17th-century house in Tarbolton, Ayrshire, Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, learned to dance, founded a debating club and became a Freemason.
Just a few years later Burns made his name with the publication of Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, which soon garnered widespread literary acclaim and established him as ‘the plowman poet’.
A visit to this authentically restored house, now converted into a museum chronicling the formative years of one of Scotland’s greatest literary talents, is a must for any Burns enthusiast.
