Every donation to the National Trust for Scotland helps us protect Scotland’s heritage. Here at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, we have the following fundraising appeals.

Save Burns Monument
The Burns Monument was built in 1823 as a fitting memorial to Robert Burns.  Sadly, constant water exposure has caused cracks to appear, so urgent repairs are now needed to restore the monument’s beautiful masonry and stonework. Please help us raise the final £100,000 needed to get these repairs underway.  All excess funds raised will be channelled into other NTS properties celebrating ‘Great Scots’ which also need your support.

Scots Wa-hey Project:
Language through Play – A Functional Play Exhibit 
This project will create a suite of around 15 – 20 bespoke play items to go into the beautifully landscaped gardens at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.
These items will draw from the life and works of Robert Burns, including the Scots language he championed, and will be stylishly manufactured using only natural materials. This installation will not only enhance the site aesthetically, it will also work as a ‘functional play exhibit’, to inspire young minds and encourage healthy activity. We hope it will also contribute to the continuing renaissance of Scots language.
To make this happen, the museum needs to raise £40,000.
