Robert Burns Birthplace Museum

Galloway Tourist Route

The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway is a fitting tribute to Scotland’s National Bard, and not only houses Burns' original works and personal belongings, but is also the gateway to the cottage where he was born, a monument in his honour and two locations made famous in the poem Tam O’Shanter – Brig o'Doon and Alloway's Auld Kirk.

Look out for environmental artwork as you wander between the attractions on the Poets Walk – you can’t miss Kenny Hunter’s giant cast iron mouse! Continue on to Ayr to visit Belleisle Gardens, Seafield Golf Course and Maclaurin Art Gallery.
