Breathes there a man,
with soul so dead,
who never to himself
“This is my own.
My native land”.
Makars' Court at The Writers' Museum is a literary commemoration in stone. It celebrates the lives and works of Scottish Makars and stresses the role of the poet or author as a skilled and versatile worker in the craft of writing.
The tour consists of a lively hour long outdoor theatre performance across the Makars' Court. Let our actors take you on a dramatic journey through the history of Scottish literature.
Performed at the site of Scotland's first evolving National Literary Monument, this fun tour really brings these writers and their works to life. The Makars' Literary Tour will return soon.
