Tamfest is inspired by the Tam o’ Shanter poem by Robert Burns!

We are delighted that South Ayrshire Council has allowed us to share their new video of Alexander Goudie’s Tam o’ Shanter, a tale told in pictures!

Rozelle House is home to Scottish Artist Alexander Goudie’s magnificent series of paintings inspired by Robert Burns’ famous poem ‘Tam o’ Shanter’. This narrative cycle of 54 paintings was purchased by South Ayrshire Council with funding provided by the T.B. Hunter Charitable Trust, The Fraser Foundation and the Souter Foundation, and they are now part of our permanent collection. A selection of these works is on display at Rozelle House all year and you can see all 54 works in the video!
