The   club   was   formed   in   Inveraray   on   28th   April   2006   to   celebrate   the   life   and   works   of Robert   Burns,   Scotland's   Poet   and   most   famous   Son   and   to   honour,   arguably,   the   greatest Scotsman that ever lived, who is honoured in countries in every continent of the world. Affiliated to the Robert Burns World Federation Roll Number 2057 Our Patrons are their Graces the Duke & Duchess of Argyll
Robert   Burns   was   born   on   25th   January   1759   and   died at the age of just 37 on 21st July 1796. Poet,       farmer,       excise-man,       nationalist,       radical, humanitarian,   song-writer   and   lover   are   just   some   of   the names which can describe him. Born    in    Ayrshire,    he    toured    Scotland    as    Caledonia's Bard,   but   Inveraray   was   the   furthest   north   he   was   to venture on the west coast.
