Summary

Burns Night comes but once a year, and when it does we at Brightwater need no excuse to get involved. Neeps, tatties, whisky, haggis, and poetry by the plateful: what better way to celebrate?

This fantastic four-day tour charts the life and times of the brilliant Robert Burns, peerless poet of the lowlands, through the beautiful pastoral settings that inspired him. Basing ourselves in the west of Scotland, we follow in Burns’ fascinating footsteps, from his humble Ayrshire beginnings in 1759, to his untimely death in Dumfries at the age of just 37.

A fervent collector of folk songs and tales, no-one has done more to preserve Scotland’s heritage — nor, dare we say it, promote the country’s haggises! Join us to discover the man behind the legacy, see the sites that spurred on his works, read the original lines of his cherished manuscripts, and pay homage at his mausoleum.

 

Tour highlights:

  • Traditional Burns Supper with all the trimmings
  • Exclusive private viewing of Burns material in the Mitchell Library
  • The Burns Birthplace Museum
  • Visit Ellisland Farm and Soutar Johnnie’s Cottage
  • Paying your own tribute at the Burns Mausoleum
  • No Single Room Supplement
