Glasses Raised As Milngavie Celebrates Hearty Burns Night Supper

Keeping up with tradition was the order of the day at Milngavie Manor, as residents and staff gathered for the Burns Supper Concert.

Resident Isabel Marshall dressed in her tartan sash especially for the event.

She said: “Burns night has a long tradition and I have always celebrated with friends and family.

“It’s so nice to be here at Milngavie Manor and to celebrate together. It brought back memories of good times as we all sang and danced to the Burns and Scottish songs.”

Milngavie Manor Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach Morag Scott said: “Everyone had a good time, enjoying the address to the haggis as well as some bagpipe tunes from the gardens.

“We also enjoyed some Burns poems as well as some Scottish music which we all sang along to. Everyone was in very good voice.”

The bagpipes were played by Cameron MacLeod who is a member of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland.

The event finished off with the delicious taste of traditional shortbread.

Burns Night is celebrated every year to mark the birthday of celebrated poet Robert Burns in 1759. The event is celebrated not only in Scotland, but around the world.
