Ye Banks an" Braes

Robert_burns Today marks the Birthday of Robbie Burns and what has become a yearly celebration of Scotland’s greatest poets life.

A celebration that was started by his friends 21 July 1801, the fifth anniversary of his death, and has been a regular occurrence ever since; more commonly celebrated on his Birthday and know as Burns Supper.

An evening filled with Whisky, Haggis, Neeps and Tatties! (Tastier than it looks!) bagpipes, dancing and recitals of the Rabbies famous poetry and song. Any excuse for a party!! :)
