Fodor's Review

In the delightful Burns Heritage Park, this thatched cottage is where Scotland's national poet lived for his first seven years. It has a living room, a kitchen, and a stable, one behind the other. The life and times of Burns, born in 1759, are beautifully and creatively illustrated, particularly in the videos of daily life in the 18th century. The garden is lush with the types of vegetables the poet's father might have grown. Take the Poet's Path through the village to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, the spooky churchyard where Tam o 'Shanter faced fearsome ghosts, and the Brig o' Doon.
