Tour Scotland Video March Small Group Tour Cemetery Kinnoull Perth Perthshire

Tour Scotland wee video of photographs from a March small group tour of the cemetery in Kinnoull, Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. The graveyard located by the River Tay is well worth a visit, consisting as it does of many 17th and 18th century gravestones, including that of the ferrymen who worked the River Tay crossing between 1621 and 1772. The graveyard is also the resting place of Euphemia Effie Chalmers Gray, born 1828, died 1897. the wife of the critic John Ruskin who later left her husband to marry his protege, the Pre Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais. There are many fine carvings on tombstones in Kinnoull Churchyard. One was erected by Alexander Duff, Boatman, to his wife who died in 1772 and their three children Jean, Alexander and Peter who all died in infancy. It shows an elaborate carving of a Boatman in his boat with an angel blowing a horn. Also John Fisher who died just 6 months old in 1857. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
