Whare Ghaists And Houlets Nightly Cry
Whare Ghaists And Houlets Nightly Cry
Robert Burns used the Auld Kirk as the setting for his well-known tale, "Tam O'Shanter". The hero passes some grisly places before approaching the Auld Kirk.
"Kirk Alloway was drawing nigh,
Whare ghaists and houlets nightly cry".
Tam viewed a scene of
"Warlocks and witches in a dance",
with music provided by the devil himself.
"A winnock bunker in the east,
There sat Auld Nick in shape o' beast."

To find out what else Tam saw, you'll need to read the poem!
