Robert Burns in Stirling

Robert Burns, Scotland#39;s national poet, stayed at the Golden Lion Hotel in 1787, and late one evening (or in the wee small hours of the morning) he etched the controversial poem Stirling Lines on a window pane in one of the public rooms. Was that room what is now the Library Bar? We do know that Burns returned some weeks later and shattered the offending pane with his riding crop (well, he was the pop idol of his day, mobbed in nearby Broad Street and at the Tollbooth.) The window glass is gone: the story remains forever.
