To mark the publication of the first volume of the new Oxford University Press Edition of The Works of Robert Burns – Commonplace Books, Tour Journals and Miscellaneous Prose, edited by Professor Nigel Leask – we are delighted to make available three maps of Robert Burns’s tours in the Highlands and Borders of Scotland.
The routes have been carefully researched and plotted by Nigel Leask as part of his work on the edition, and the maps have been produced in collaboration with the Map Collections division of the National Library of Scotland.
- Robert Burns’s Tour of the Borders, 5th May – 1st June 1787
- Robert Burns’s West Highland Tour, June 1787
- Robert Burns’s Tour of the Highlands, 25th August – 16th September 1787
