Burns Street

The Tarbolton Collection

Composed for Burns Street, Tarbolton, Ayrshire, Scotland

Manson’s Inn was situated at the end of what is now Burns Street, Tarbolton. This was the meeting place of St James Lodge from 1784. Manson had been treasurer from 1774. He served ‘small beer of a very superior kind’, hence the reference to ‘Manson’s barrels’ in ‘To Dr John Mackenzie’.
