Burns Night at The Edgemoor

 

Born in Alloway, Ayrshire, in 1759 to William Burness, a poor tenant
farmer, and Agnes Broun, Robert Burns was the eldest of seven. He
spent his youth working his father’s farm, but in spite of his poverty he
was extremely well read. At 15 Robert was the principal worker on the
farm and this prompted him to start writing in an attempt to find “some
kind of counterpoise for his circumstances.” It was at this tender age
that Burns penned his first verse, “My Handsome Nell”, which was an
ode to the other subjects that dominated his life, namely scotch and
women… On the anniversary of his birth, Scots both at home and abroad
celebrate Robert Burns with a supper, where they address the haggis,
the ladies and whisky. A celebration which would undoubtedly have
enjoyed.
