Robert Burns returns to Leith

Removed to make way for the tram works, the land mark statue returns to Bernard Street in time for Burns Night.

I was just passing by as the crane was lifting Rabbie from the back of a lorry and placing him in position, on the corner of Constitution street in Leith.

The statue was erected by the Leith Burns Club in 1898 and has been moved a few times but hopefully now he can relax, he looks pleased to be back in his rightful place, looking over Leithers as they pass by.

The statue will be officially unveiled once again, on Burns Night 2022, the 25th January.
