getting married at Burns Cottage

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.

The Voice of Nature

Voice of Nature 3Saturday 4th July 2015 until Sunday 25th October 2015

The voice of Nature loudly cries,
And many a message from the skies,
That something in us never dies.

Robert Burns. New Year's Day, st. 3 (1790)

The theme of this exhibition is our environment. This has particular relevance as, not only is the National Trust for Scotland the nation's largest conservation charity, it has often been said that Burns was ahead of his time in his awareness of the dangers to the environment of human interference.

Throughout the summer two films by Dalziel & Scullion, the well-known environmental artists, are being shown in the gallery space. A sound installation, by the multimedia artist Laura Graham, can be experienced in the Auld Kirk.

In addition, Museum Galleries Scotland has generously funded a new sculpture by Professor Jake Harvey installed on the Poet’s Path (on the way to Burns Cottage). The title of this work is Chieftain and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the inspiration for this work has come from To a Haggis, a poem recited the world over at every Burns Supper. 

This programme is part of a project, “Burns Bridges: New Perspectives on Robert Burns” which has been supported by an award from Museums Galleries Scotland. There is further information regarding the artists and their work in leaflets available at the museum reception desk.
