  • Robert Burn's Birthplace Cottage & Museum

    Famed as much for his egalitarianism as his silver tongue, Robert Burns has become an international icon: a symbol of Scotland's national character. This flagship museum weaves through the town of Alloway, showing landmarks of the bard's life. Come and see Burns Monument, a tribute set in luscious rose gardens.
