Bachelors' Club, Tarbolton
Only a few years before his collection of poems was published, Robert Burns co-founded the Tarbolton Bachelors’ Club in this curious red-shuttered, thatched 17th century house. It was here that he learned to dance, became a freemason and created a debating society.
Bachelors’ Club is a must-see for Burns fans, and gives a rare insight into the secrets of male social life of the age. Downstairs is an 18th century living space, while upstairs are the meeting rooms used by Burns and his friends. It is owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
