Bachelors' Club

Historic Buildings & Homes

Sandgate Street, Tarbolton, South Ayrshire, KA5 5RB

    In this 17th century thatched house, Robert Burns and friends formed a debating club in 1780.

    Under the thatched roof of this humble-looking, 17th century house in Tarbolton, Ayrshire, Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, learned to dance, founded a debating club and became a Freemason.

    A visit to this authentically restored house, now converted into a museum chronicling the formative years of one of Scotland’s greatest literary talents, is a must for any Burns enthusiast.
