Amazing day! Barr Castle, Airds Moss (Richard Cameron died here), Loudon Hill (Wallace 1305, Bruce 1307, and Drumclog nearby June 1, 1679), Strathaven Castle (Covenanter prison, garrison of dragoons), Loudoun Keep (of Rebels Keep, April 1685 rescue of 8 Covenanters) prayer meeting at Loudoun Parish (great blessing hearing the saints pray for their benighted church; David Randall talked with our group about the state of the Church of Scotland and his censure by the Presbytery for declaring that the CS has blasphemed the Holy Spirit--I'll post audio of lots as soon as I get a chance--busy!). Had a wonderful lunch at Loudoun Hill Inn, a classic, well-appointed Scottish roadside inn. Thanks Gordon Lennox!
