Virtual Scotland – On the trail of Robert Burns

Follow in the footsteps of the ‘Ploughman Poet’ who was born in a tumbledown cottage in rural Ayrshire. His creative genius saw him write some of the world’s most well known lyrics and poetry. 

Robert Burns is Scotland’s Bard and one of the country’s greatest cultural exports. He is remembered every year at countless Burns Night events around the world, where his short life is celebrated with haggis, whisky, poems and song. We celebrate this true Scottish icon exploring the people and places across his homeland that inspired him.


This is a public virtual tour so we will spend some time getting to know each other beforehand, giving you an opportunity to ask some initial questions.

Your tour will include:

  • Burn’s birthplace in a humble cottage in Alloway
  • Alloway Kirk the setting for Tam O’Shanter
  • The Brig o’Doon where the fictional Meg loses her tail
  • Mossgiel Farm where Holy Willie’s Prayer and To a mouse were penned
  • Old Edinburgh Town, where Burns achieved fame and notoriety
  • Dumfries and the Burns Mausoleum
Alloway Kirk

Throughout your tour, there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions  and we can take a closer look at anywhere we visit. You will require a good internet connection as this tour is delivered entirely online making use of live video-conferencing software.
