Robert Burns (25 January 1759 - 21 July 1796) is Scotland's most-loved poet and his words immortalised the beautiful and untamed West Coast. Burns was born in Alloway and lived most of his life in Dumfriesshire. Using old photographs drawn from a range of private and public collections, this book celebrates that landscape and how it inspired some of the most famous lines in Scottish literature. David Carroll's selection provides a fascinating journey through the life of Scotland's national poet, which will not only stir the memories of those people long familiar with Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire, but will also serve as an introduction to anyone exploring 'Burns Country' for themselves.show more
