Andrew Aitken Has Been Added To The ‘Stories’ Section

Andrew Aitken has now been added to the ‘Stories’ section of our website! Andrew was born in Beith in 1780 and worked on a farm and had a passion for poetry.

He didn’t attend school but was taught to read and write by his mother and began dabbling in writing essays and poetry, which were published in periodicals and newspapers. Eventually his works were collected in a book which was so popular it had a second edition printed!
