The Gatehouse of Fleet Burns Club has scooped Stranraer’s Robyn Stapleton as the top-of-the-bill entertainment for its Annual Burns Supper in the Murray Arms Hotel on Friday 6th February 2015. Not only was Robyn the 2014 Scottish Young Traditional Singer of the Year but she also recently won the coveted Dumfries and Galloway Life magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ award which described her as having the ‘voice of an angel.’ The songs of Robert Burns are dear to her heart so those attending the Burns Supper are in for a real treat.
In the mid nineteenth century the factor at Cally did many water colour sketches within the woods at Cally and a hundred years ago William McMurray took a number of photographs of Cally but neither of them drew or photographed the Temple.
