The Robert Burns Heritage Trail

A well marked heritage trail through his life and haunts in Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire. His Howff at Dumfries is very atmospheric. The best bit is at Alloway: The Auld Brig o’Doon and the auld Kirk where Tam o’Shanter saw the witches dance are more evocative than the monument and gardens up the road. Burns cottage: the birthplace of Robert Burns. Burns Museum: the World’s most important collection of Burns manuscripts and artefacts.
Free parking, souvenir shops and licensed restaurant.
