About Burns and Whisky Tours

Born in Ayrshire on 25 January 1759, Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns moved to Dumfriesshire in 1788 where he composed and published some of his most famous works including; Auld Lang Syne, Ae Fond Kiss, and Tam O’ Shanter.

On our Burns and whisky tours, we take you back in time to walk in the footsteps of Scotland’s iconic national poet. In doing so, you will explore the amazing history and landscape in this beautiful area of South West Scotland.

Using our local knowledge, we can stop off at the best coffee houses, tea rooms, inns and restaurants this area of Scotland has to offer.

After taking in our National Poet's birthplace and his early life in Ayrshire, we relive his move south to Ellisland Farm before exploring his life in the historic town of Dumfries. In Dumfries, we make a poignant visit to his Mausoleum in St Michael's Churchyard where Robert was laid to rest. If you fancy a wee dram, we can visit one of Scotland's most southerly whisky distilleries. There we can sample their Man o' Words whisky; named in honour of Robert Burns. We can also drop into Robert's favourite inn which is still going strong after it first opened its doors in 1610.
