Robert Burns in Scotland

The Scotlanders on the Burns Trail

January is that time of year when one of our most famous sons steps in to hog the tourism limelight and haggis sales go through the roof! Robert Burns was an awful lot more than just a poet and his works and influence have been endlessly studied and admired over the centuries. Despite the plethora of statues of him around the world and the fact that Auld Lang Syne is second only to ‘Happy Birthday’ as the most sung piece of work in existence, he was in reality a relatively simple man. Being so close to the source we’re fortunate then to be able to walk in his footsteps, frequent his favourite spots and reflect on his inspirations.
