  • What a fabulous day out for my husband, dogs and myself. We visited primarily because it is dog friendly and I knew some of the more well known Burns poems. We were blown away by our guided tour, hosted by Ronnie, which is much more than we expected. Ronnie was passionate and informative and spent time to explain the significance of Ellisland in the history of Robert Burns. The kind curator even allowed us to visit areas not normally open to the public. He is well deserved of the nomination received for the wonderful welcome he shows. We were then directed to a lovely walk with our dogs to see the Hermitage and nearby Friars Carse. I just want to extend our thanks for a wonderful day out.
