“Impressive Monument”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We went in November but it was still a nice walk around the garden. The monument was impressive and you could walk up the spiral stairs to get a great view and photo opportunity of the gardens. Inside you can see life statues of Tam O Shanter and friends

“Honey bees and lavender”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

these gardens are beautifully laid out and well maintained, a place to sit in quiet reflection even with all the other tourists milling around. I have some lovely photographs of a bee collecting nectar from the lovely lavender plants.

“lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Monument lovely, not a lot to see inside but enough especially if you're an avid Rabbie fan as I am.
The gardens serene, they were not busy the day we visited.

“Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Beautiful village and interesting historical district. New Burns Birthplace Museum nearby as is Burns Cottage and Auld Haunted Kirk. Well worth a visit and all within walking distance of Brig O'Doon Hotel with excellent (reasonably priced) food and beautiful decor.
