St Andrews Burns Club has a notable history.    It is one of the oldest Burns Clubs in the world and was founded in 1869.  It is number 13 in The Robert Burns World Federation which itself was founded in 1885.  Like other clubs our aim is to encourage the enjoyment of the works of Robert Burns.  We do this by running a series of school competitions.  

Anyone interested in joining the club can find the forms at the documents page of this site.

Rory Turnbull was the St Andrews Day Piper for the year.   President Jim McArthurs awarded Rory his Prize at our recent Burns Supper.
