Lochgoin Farm

This isolated farmhouse was the home of John Howie, the author of 'The Scots Worthies' an incredibly popular book throughout Scotland when it was published in the 18th century.  It is an account of the lives of some of the Coventanters and the persecution they endured.   John Howie's great grandfather was among these men and his farm was often used tp shelter other Covenanters when they were under threat.  The Howies still posess the farm and it now holds a small collection of Covenanting relics.  The Lochgoin monument is nearby.
