Winter Drive To Evelick Castle Perthshire Scotland [00:41]
Tour Scotland of a Winter drive to Evelick Castle on visit to the Sidlaw Hills in Perthshire. The ruins of Evelick Castle, the ancient seat of the Lindsays, and the birthplace of Helen Lindsay, wife of John Campbell, Esq., of Glenlyon, whose daughter, Helen, according to the session records, was married on the 22nd of September, 1663, to famous Rob Roy MacGregor. This Scottish castle was was built in the early 16th century, by an offshoot of the Lindsays of Crawford. In 1666, Andrew Lindsay of Evelick was created a baronet, and his 2nd son Thomas was the victim of a particularly brutal murder here at the hands of his step brother James Douglas. During a game, Douglas stabbed Lindsay 5 times, then held the dying youth under water in a burn before finally dashing his brains out with a rock. No doubt Douglas suffered from a dysfunctional family and a disadvantaged childhood! The last of the Lindsays of Evelick drowned in 1799
