The museum includes the famous Burns Cottage, where he set some of his greatest work, the elegant monument and gardens created in his honour and a modern museum housing a collection of his life and works. We continue to Dumfries House, one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes and best kept heritage secrets, with sumptuous interiors and magnificent furnishings, located in a marvellous 2000 acre setting. Here we enjoy a guided tour and afternoon tea before returning to our hotel.
