Robert Burns

Alloway Auld Kirk

Description:

Alloway Auld Kirk is the burial place of William Burns, the poets father.  It is also the setting for most of 'Tam O'Shanter'.

 

Although this picture was taken in the very early years of the 20th century, the kirk looks much the same today as it does here.
