Old Photograph Pub Carnwath Scotland


Old photograph of the Pub in a cottage with a thatched roof in Carnwath on the southern edge of the Pentland Hills thirty miles South of Edinburgh, and Glasgow, Scotland. The Clan Lamont were driven from their homeland to settle in Carnwath. They later became Covenanters. In 1630, the Carnwath estate, owned by the Earl of Mar was purchased by Sir Robert Dalzell, later to become Lord Dalzell. In 1639, his son, the 2nd Lord Dalzell and also named Robert, was further elevated to become the Earl of Carnwath. The title was forfeit in 1716 when the 5th Earl, Robert Dalzell became attainted due to his support of the Jacobite cause but the titles were restored in 1826. Writer, spy and politician, George Lockhart, inherited the Carnwath estates from his father, George Lockhart of the Lockharts of Lee, who had purchased them in 1681.
