Highland Mary's Grave

Great to see that the Greenock Burns Club have been given a grant to help restore the Highland Mary monument in Greenock Cemetery.


 
Highland Mary (Mary Campbell) was the love of Robert Burns life.  They were due to sail away to start a new life in Jamaica.  Before he could meet with her at their port of departure in Greenock, Mary died of a fever in 1786.
