Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Muirkirk

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Muirkirk village in East Ayrshire, Scotland. The village developed around its church, which was built in 1631, and was a fertile recruiting ground for the Covenanter movement. Isabel Pagan, born 1740, died 1821, was a Scottish poet of the Romantic Era. Some of her poetry included; Ca' the Ewes to the Knowes, The Crook and Plaid, The Spinning Wheel and Muirkirk Light Weights, she died at the end of 1821 in her 80th year and was buried in the cemetery at Muirkirk. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
