Solway Burns Club

Solway Burns Club

Open to both men and women, the Solway Burns Club, founded in 1921, is registered member no. 589 of the Burns Federation.

The club celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2011.


It attracts members from Annan and district, the membership being currently about fifty. The Club's objectives are to provide fellowship and to foster an appreciation of Scottish literature, music and art. New members are welcome.


In 1996, the Club erected a cairn to commemorate the time which Exciseman Burns spent at Waterfoot waiting for a cargo of Rum from Antigua. He described Waterfoot as "this wild place of the world".
