Scotlands poet suffers Rising Damp

Apparently the Burns Cottage Museum has been suffering from rising damp.
The museum
houses priceless manuscripts and letters from Rabbie Burns - the Scottish Bard.
Rising damp has caused structural damage to the century-old building which adjoins Burn’s birthplace in Ayrshire.
A valuable Burns artefact had to be moved out of the museum for restoration because of the condition.
Its a shame for the Rabbie it really is. However most of us in Scotland usually suffer more from falling damp than rising damp.
