Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Tarbolton

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Tarbolton in South Ayrshire, Scotland. I hope these might be of interest to folks with Scottish ancestry. On 11 November 1780 a debating club was founded by young men from Tarbolton including Robert Burns, Gilbert Burns, Hugh Reid, Alexander Brown, Thomas Wright, William M'Gavin and Walter Mitchell. Robert Burns was unanimously elected president for the first meeting, held in the property of John Richard, used as an ale-house. David Sillar, who lived nearby, was added to the list of founders in May 1781, followed by Matthew Paterson, James Paterson, and John Orr in 1782.
