"The scenery of the 'Bonnie Doon' is pretty enough in itself, but its association with the songs of Burns imparts to it transcendent interest. In an evening walk by the banks and braes of the winding Doon, past Alloways's auld haunted kirk and the Brig o' Doon's keystone arch, you will see many of those things which have been filtered through the mind of Burns into his verse..."

Letterpress by photographer Stephen Thompson from his book 'Studies From Nature'.
