Edinburgh’s Writers’ Museum celebrates the lives and works of three giants of Scottish Literature – Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson. This fascinating museum is well worth a visit, and the small extract below might just encourage you to open the door and head on in.
Entrance is free, though donations are welcome – I hear that the museum is under threat of closure, so do visit if you can and be sure to spread word of its merit.
From Robert Burns’ poem, Open the door to me, oh:
“Oh, open the door, some pity to shew,
Oh, open the door to me, oh,
Tho’ thou hast been false, I’ll ever prove true,
Oh, open the door to me, oh.”
