About Robert Burns Ellisland Trust
The Robert Burns Ellisland Trust is committed to conserving and promoting Ellisland Farm at Auldgirth in Dumfries & Galloway as one of the most significant locations in the life of Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet. We are ambitious to increase understanding of Ellisland as central to Burns’ artistic development, where he composed Auld Lang Syne and Tam O’Shanter. We will enhance awareness of its environmental importance as the best place to see the natural world through the poet’s eyes. We will increase appreciation of Ellisland as Robert Burns’ first marital home with Jean Armour and the foundational site for European Romantic song.
We need your help to achieve our ambitious goals for 2020/21!
