Celebrities have always opened doors. The Lodge Minute for 19th May 1787, records, "At a general encampment held this day, the following Brethren were made Royal Arch Masons, viz, Robert Burns from the Lodge of St. James, Tarbolton, Ayrshire, and Robert Ainslie, from the Lodge of St. Luke's, Edinburgh, by James Carmichael, William Grieve, Daniel Dow, Robert Grieve etc, etc. Robert Ainslie paid one guinea admission dues, but on account of R. Burns' remarkable poetical genius, the encampment unanimously agreed to admit him gratis and considered themselves honoured by having a man of such shining abilities for one of their Companions."

I'm intrigued by the mysterious reference to the 'Land Of Cakes'. Normally I'd assume it must mean oatcakes, but in the case of Eyemouth, could it be fishcakes?
