The Greatest Scot

Robert (Rabbie) Burns a poet and song writer was born in Alloway just south of Ayr in 1759 – to many Scots he is regarded as the greatest of all Scots.

He is perhaps best known for his his poem (and song) Auld Lang Syne which is often sung at Hogmanay.

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.
