At Brio Retirement Living we champion Scottish heritage and culture and aim to embed local traditions into all our developments.

Our Chapelton team is set to join in tonight's Burns Night festivities and mark this special Scottish day by sharing some of their favourite sections of Robert Burns pennings.

The team at Landale Court are cooking up their neeps and tatties on what would have been the poet's 259th birthday.

To celebrate Burns Night, we’d like to share some of our favourite snippets from the works of Rabbie Burns.

My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here;
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe –
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
My Heart's In the Highlands

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.
A Red, Red Rose

Wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie,
O, what a panic’s in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi’ bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an’ chase thee,
Wi’ murd’ring pattle!
To a Mouse

However you are celebrating Burns night we wish you a great evening!
