Ellisland, The Rural Home of Robert Burns

At Ellisland we celebrate and share the extraordinary story of the rural home built by Scottish National Bard Robert Burns; a story of hospitality, of an inspirational landscape and of creative talent. Ellisland is an important part of the Robert Burns story, being the only house that Burns built for himself and the site which inspired him to write some of his most famous poems. Today you can discover the poet through the museum’s collections, visiting the heart of his farmhouse home, the room where internationally renowned writing was created and the landscape which was his inspiration.
