Burns Night and special occasions 

Are you thinking of hosting a Burns Supper this year? Do you wish to hire a traditional Highland bagpiper for the event? 
Every year on the 25th of January, the world celebrates the life and works of the most famous of all Scottish poets, Robert Burns, born in Alloway, Ayrshire.
