Big Man Walking the Burns Corridor

  • If the towns and villages along the Burns Corridor got together, would it be possible for the Big Man to stay in the Corridor, visiting each community in turn over a one month period? Perhaps moving on to other corridors later.

    Do the Burns Corridor annually and have a special tour during the Year of Homecoming Scotland 2014.

    Numbers 1 to 26 on the map at: gives you places connected with Robert Burns:

    1) Burns Cottage and Museum, Alloway 2) Burns Monument and Gardens, Alloway 3) Tam o'Shanter Experience, Alloway 4) Alloway Old Kirk, Alloway 5) Burns House Museum, Mauchline 6) Highland Mary's Monument, Mauchline 7) Brig o' Doon, Alloway 8) Poosie Nansie's Tavern, Mauchline 9) National Burns Memorial Tower, Mauchline 10) Mauchline Castle, Mauchline 11) Burns House, Dumfries 12) Burns Mausoleum, Dumfries 13) Robert Burns Centre, Dumfries 14) Broughton House and Garden, Kirkcudbright 16) Ellisland, Dumfries & Galloway 17) Globe Inn, Dumfries 18) Cessnock Castle, Ayrshire 19) Brow Well, Ruthwell
    20) Dean Castle, Kilmarnock 21) Stair, Ayrshire 22) Bachelors' Club, Tarbolton 23) Souter Johnnie's Cottage, Kirkoswald 25) Burns Club and Museum, Irvine 26) Vennel Museum, Irvine 32) Blair Castle, Kilwinning.

    If we could work out a route to include: Alloway, Ayr, Irvine, Kilmarnock, Mauchline, New Cumnock, Sanquhar, Thornhill, Gretna and Dumfries that would cover 95% of the Burns Life Trail.
