This evening, I am providing summary information on Robert Tannahill (1774-1810), a poet from  Paisley in the West of Scotland.

Interestingly, Tannahill was a contemporary of Scotland’s National Poet, Robert Burns ( 1759-1796) and both died at similar age, Burns age 37 yrs and Tannahill age 36 yrs.
