Burns Night is a much-anticipated part of the Scottish calendar and a true institution of Scottish life. This night can vary from small, informal gatherings of friends and family to full dinners with speakers, pipers, ceilidhs and more.

After all you can't have a Burns Night without a touch of tartan!

So.......what exactly does a Burns Night entail? We've got you covered...
