Burns Night 2021 Celebration Video

25 January, 2021

Poetry, haggis, whisky and friendship is the perfect blend for a Burns Night supper in honour or Scotland’s best-loved  poet. Robert Burns, Scotland’s uncrowned king of poetry, is revered for his outspoken rhetoric, for giving a voice to liberalism and socialism but he was also a romantic and much of his work has been inspired by his Highland lasses!

In this celebration we share with you a tradition that was born in 1801 and has continued up to the present day. Burns’ verse, songs and literature continues to inspire and delight. In 2009 he was chosen as the greatest Scot by the Scottish public in a vote run by the Scottish television channel, STV.
