A NEW post box topper has popped up in the West End.

The Robert Burns-themed design appeared on Dumbarton Road in Partick just in time for Burns Night on January 25.

The cute crochet features a chef with a plump-looking haggis and a bagpiper ready to 'pipe in the haggis'.

The new postbox topper is also complete with a few lines from the bard himself.

The address to the haggis reads: "Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,

"Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!

"Aboon them a' ye tak your place,

"Painch, tripe, or thairm:

"Weel are ye wordy o' a grace

"As lang's my arm."
