    Explore the former home of Robert Burns, which today it is one of the leading visitor attractions in Dumfries dedicated to Scotland's national poet.

    Robert Burns lived in Ellisland Farm from 1788 to 1791. It was here, inspired by the tranquil setting, that many of Burns' finest songs and poems, including Tam o 'Shanter and the world-famous Auld Lang Syne were penned.

    Today, Ellisland Farm provides a wonderful insight into the life of Robert Burns. With guided tours always available, you'll be able to witness some of the bards' original writings and possessions during an engaging tour of the house and stables.

    Burns was often inspired by the countryside around the farm and today there are stunning walks and nature trails for you to enjoy, which offer panoramic views of the region along to Friar's Carse where you can enjoy a wee dram of some of Scotland's finest malt whisky.
