another poetry walk

Robert Burns Steps in Ayr, Scotland

January 25 is the birthday of poet Robert Burns (January 25, 1759 – July 21, 1796), which we celebrate here by adding this handsome poetry walk to our growing collection. We recently mentioned a Gordon Young project done in collaboration with Why Not Associates. This is another.

Created in 1998, the Burns Steps are located outside the Tam O’ Shanter pub in Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland. The granite steps are carved with a verse from Burns’s poem “Scotch Drink.” More, but not much more, here.
