M'Culloch, David (d. 1825)

Son of David M'Culloch of Ardwell and Janet Corsane, David junior was a friend of Burns at Dumfries, and a fellow mason of St Andrew's Lodge. M'Culloch told Lockhart that when on one occasion he rode into Dumfries in 1794, he saw Burns walking alone on one side of the street unrecognised by the gentry on the other. M'Culloch made to cross to the side on which the

poet was, but Burns called out, 'Nay, nay, my young friend, that's all over now': then, after a pause, quoted the lines beginning, 'His bonnet stood ance fu' fair on his brow', from 'O, werena my hert licht, I wad die', by Lady Grizel Baillie. Shortly after this episode, Burns wrote from Dumfries on 21st June 1794, telling M'Culloch -he was to visit Galloway, and proposing that M'Culloch should join him and Mr Syme on a visit to Patrick Heron at Kerroughtree.
