Robert Burns' House

Burns spent the last few years of his life in this house, now a museum. The room on the left-hand side of the ground floor has displays of some of the poet's abundant correspondence. The small upper room, furnished with a desk and chair, still has the windowpane with the name of Burns engraved on it.
