Windows on Burns

The rural home of Scottish National Bard Robert Burns which he built for himself and his family. This place is the inspiration for many of his most famous works including Auld Lang Syne and Tam O' Shanter. Visit the room in which he wrote these poems, and discover more about life on a Dumfriesshire Farm in the late 18th century. Along with the house and displays you can also explore the farmyard, farm buildings and riverside walks.
