Event description
Visit Ellisland Farm, the rural home of Robert Burns from 1788-1791, and explore the place where he wrote some of his most famous work.

About this Event

Follow in the footsteps of one of world’s greatest poets and experience the tranquility of Ellisland Farm; the place that inspired Robert Burns to write some of his most famous poetry and songs.

Ellisland Farm re-opens for tours in early summer 2021. Connect with the Bard and his life here at the farm through an extensive collection of artefacts, memorabilia and manuscripts housed in the home he built, lived and worked in. You can admire the view of the River Nith from his study where many of his greatest works were penned, and soak in the unique atmosphere of Ellisland Farm, which has barely changed since the time of Burns.

About Ellisland Farm

Robert Burns described Ellisland Farm as the "poet's choice". Of the three farms offered to Burns by his landlord, this was the place he chose to build a home for his family.

During his stay here, Robert Burns produced around a quarter of his songs and poems, 130 in total, and 230 of his 700 letters. Many of his best known works were written here, including the poetic masterpiece ‘Tam O Shanter’, his songs ‘Ye Banks and Braes o Bonnie Doon’ and his version of ‘Auld Lang Syne’, which continues to be sung across the world to this day.

The grounds of Ellisland Farm are well worth exploring in their own right, with a beautiful, atmospheric riverside walk and stunning views of the Dumfriesshire countryside. Ellisland Farm is a dog friendly destination. Please check our website or Facebook page for our latest visitor information.
