Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Barrhill



Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Barrhill in South Ayrshire, Scotland. The village lies on the A714 road between Girvan and Newton Stewart. Barrhill railway station, on the Glasgow South Western Line is approximately ½ mile South West of the Village centre. This station featured in The Five Red Herrings, a 1931 Lord Peter Wimsey detective novel by Dorothy L Sayers. In 1665, by the side of Cross Water in Barrhill, John Murchie and Daniel Mieklewrick were found by soldiers to be in possession of Bibles and assumed to be Covenanters and shot to death. They were buried on the spot, and a memorial was built, known as The Martyrs' Tom. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
