The pedestal states: ROBERT BURNS, BORN NEAR AYR, 25th January, 1759 DIED AT DUMFRIES, 21st July, 1796; with below a bas-relief representing 'The Poetic Muse crowning Burns with a laurel wreath'.
A very impressive monument with loads of interesting architectural detail. The statue of Burns that used to be contained within is now in portrait gallery
