A bit late for "Burns Night", but I took these images today of the Burns statue outside Arbroath's public library.

Burns never wore the kilt which was an outlawed form of dress after the Jacobite Rebellion. However Burns wrote about the injustice dealt out to John Highlandman whose crime was to wear highland dress and be loyal to his clan resulting in him being deported. The establishment had decreed that it was illegal to wear a uniform signifying membership of a proscribed clan, carry a weapon and be disloyal to the crown.
