Some of Robert Burns’ best-loved nature poems were inspired by the tranquil setting of Ellisland Farm.
Ellisland is now a popular museum and visitor attraction and it provides a wonderful insight into the life of Robert Burns on a farm two hundred years ago. Guided tours of Ellisland farmhouse and museum are always available.
Here you can see the original writings and possessions of Robert Burns and stroll along the idyllic Burns Walk beside the River Nith near Dumfries.
There is plenty to do for those who aren’t fully absorbed Robert Burns enthusiasts! Beautiful walks along the river to Frairs Carse for a “wee dram”, nature trails with panoramic views, BBQ facilities and a fine assortment of vintage agricultural implements.
