Burns was a true romantic and he gave us some of the greatest love poems and songs in ours, or any other language. That is why his birthplace cottage is such a wonderful place to host your wedding.

The attached image of the Cottage location shows our Red Room as a stunning unique wedding venue. This is the perfect setting for a small intimate wedding with a seating capacity for 45 guests.
