Royal Mail is to issue a special postmark to mark Burns Night.
It will be printed on all stamped and franked mail posted in Scotland, as well as other parts of the UK, from now until Saturday, and will read: ‘Celebrating Burns Night January 25’.
This includes mail being sent abroad.
Royal Mail’s postmarks are reserved for special occasions and are used to recognise significant events, historical anniversaries or support of charity.
Rob Jenson, Operations Director, Royal Mail said: “We are delighted to be marking Burns Night this year with a special postmark.
“Millions of people throughout the world celebrate the best of Scotland on Burns Night, and we’re pleased to mark the occasion in this unique way.”
