Robert Burns's Tour of the Borders - Ian W. Landles
When & Where
Robert Burns after the successful publication of a second edition of his poetry in Edinburgh at the end of 1786 was hailed as a sensation. Although flush with money he soon tired of Edinburgh society and decided to see something of his native land. In May 1787 he set out on a tour of the Borders. This is the first of two lectures covering this tour. This is Part one of two lectures. March 2015 for Part 2.
