Robert Burns (6)

In March 1814, Alexander Boswell, son of James Boswell, first mooted plans to create a monument to Robert Burns. Eventually in 1823 the 70 foot monument opened. The location of this classic Grecian temple was selected for superb views of Burns Cottage, Kirk Alloway and the Brig o'Doon. From its roof, visitors can see the River Doon and the Carrick hills.
