It is Robert Burns but not the one you suggest. Very close but no bannock.

Sorry Jim, this one is a replica of the one you are thinking of in Burns Statue Square in the town of Ayr. A bit warmer view of the Ayr original.  Thunderchild was closer.

IN it ?  Swimming or on board something interesting ?   How about another statue.  This lucky fellow is outside the casino seen in the background.  Where away?
