Batchelors' Club Tarbolton
Effigy of Robert Burns at Tarbolton
This evening, I am posting information on the historic, Bachelors’ Club Museum in Tarbolton, South Ayrshire, Scotland.
The Club was formed by Robert Burns together with his brother Gilbert and five other friends as a debating society for the amusement and interest of young men who were ‘a professed lover of one or more of the female sex’. In reality the club was a platform to enable Robert Burns to improve his debating and public speaking skills and a step in Burns’ self-improvement agenda. Burns was initiated as a Freemason in the Club in 1781. The building is now a museum but has limited opening hours.
