The Footsteps of Burns

Walk in the Footsteps of Burns
On Saturday we drove down to Alloway in the rain and walked in Burns footsteps. The skies cleared as we neared the small town he lived in until he was seven. 
We walked over the Brig O Doon, past the Aulk Kirk, the cottage William Burnes built, the road from Ayr to Maypole and the flat beaches looking west. An impressive and picturesque part of Scotland's west coast. There is a Burns museum where you can see some of his letters, books and writing quills. Worth a visit.
