Ellisland - home of Robert Burns in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

Poet Robert Burns was 29, in the prime of his life and at the peak of his powers, when he came to Ellisland Farm in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

Some of Robert Burns' best-loved nature poems were inspired by the tranquil setting of Ellisland Farm.

Ellisland is now a popular museum and visitor attraction and it provides a wonderful insight into the life of Robert Burns on a farm two hundred years ago. Guided tours of Ellisland farmhouse and museum are always available.

Here you can see the original writings and possessions of Robert Burns and stroll along the idyllic Burns Walk beside the River Nith near Dumfries.

There is plenty to do for those who aren't fully absorbed Robert Burns enthusiasts! Beautiful walks along the river to Friar's Carse for a "wee dram", nature trails with panoramic views, BBQ facilities and a fine assortment of vintage agricultural implements.

"As Chairman of the non-profit organisation, 'Friends of Ellisland' I am delighted you are in contact with us. We hope our web site will provide you with the facts you seek and that you will visit us not only on the Web but also on the ground where there is a great deal to see and enjoy."
