Tam O’Shanter’s kirk of witches and warlocks to dance new jig

MARTYN McLAUGHLIN
22 March 2005

It is the ancient kirk where Satan led a gaggle of warlocks and witches in a frenzied jig "till roof and rafters a' did dirl".

But now a dilapidated Ayrshire monument immortalised in Tam O'Shanter, one of the best-known works of Robert Burns, is to be preserved for future generations in the latest effort to safeguard the poet's heritage.

The Auld Kirk of Alloway, the scene of a supernatural dance in the poem, and its churchyard, where Burns buried his father, will be reinstated in a £250,000 project.
