History
The Paisley Burns Club was founded in 1805 by Robert Tannahill and claims to the world's first formally constituted club to commemorate the poet Robert Burns (1759-96). Its all-male membership, that is limited to forty, still meets in Tannahill's cottage, which was gifted to the club in 1933.
