A Hidden Hotbed of Covenanter Activity – Carrington, Midlothian – SFH056

A Hidden Hotbed of Covenanter Activity – Carrington, Midlothian – SFH056

Carrington is a tiny, sleepy village in Midlothian. It’s not the sort of place known for Covenanter connections, but Scotland’s Forgotten History can be found in surprising places. In fact, when you dig deeper you find that it was a hotbed of conventicles and Covenanter activity.

Please don’t travel to the village during the Covid-19 crisis but you can listen to the podcast and follow a virtual tour on street view. Start at the Main Street and Church and turn left out of the village to go to the Whitehill Burial Aisle at the bottom of the hill.
