Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Ballantrae

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Ballantrae, Ayrshire, Scotland. Ballantrae is a village in Carrick, South Ayrshire. I hope these might be of interest to folks with Scottish ancestry. In June 1673, while holding a conventicle at Knockdow near Ballantrae, Alexander Peden, was captured by Major William Cockburn, and condemned by the Privy Council to four years and three months imprisonment on the Bass Rock and a further fifteen months in the Edinburgh Tolbooth. The town is the fictional setting of the novel The Master of Ballantrae by Robert Louis Stevenson.
