Many of the hotbeds of Covenanter activity were in Dumfries & Galloway or Ayrshire, but not all. This week, Matthew Vogan is at Kilravock Castle (pronounced “Kilrawk”) near the village of Croy, between Inverness and Nairn to tell us about some of the Covenanters that we know about from around that area. The best overview of this region at the time is The Covenanters in Moray and Ross by Murdoch MacDonald
This is the best account of the life of Lilias Dunbar. It uses her autobiography. The Ladies of the Covenant: Memoirs of Distinguished Female Characters, Embracing the Period of the Covenant and the Persecution
Thomas Ross was one of those ministers who refused to accept episcopacy and was thrown out of his church in 1662. After spending some time in prison, he ended up spending his last year at home very ill.
