About Eyemouth

Burns and Ainslie arrived here in the May of 1787 to much fanfare. He and Ainslie were made Royal Arch Masons of St Ebbs Lodge and while Ainslie had to fork out the one guinea admission fee, Burns’s celebrity status insured no such fee was charged of him. Indeed such was his fame that the cutlery and utensils he used at the 'repast' have been kept to this day by the Eyemouth Lodge.
