Tour Scotland video of the William Rae Wilson Mausoleum on visit to Glasgow Necropolis. Doctor William Rae Wilson LLD, sometime of Kelvinbank, was born in Paisley 7th June 1772. Wilson practised as a solicitor. Unfortunately his first wife died 18 months after they were married and he went travelling in the Middle East, subsequently writing 'Travels in the holy land' and other books. Eventually he married 'An English lady of good family' from London. When Wilson died she had this domed octagonal Moorish kiosk built, in the style of Sepulchre monuments from his beloved Palestine. No wood, iron or lead has been used in its construction, all joints are concealed. The family arms of Rae and Wilson are depicted in white marble inside. Wilson adopted the middle name of Rae when he inherited money from an uncle of the same name.

Tour Scotland video of St Bride's Chapel on visit to St Conan's Kirk by Loch Awe, Argyll. This chapel contains the tomb of the Fourth Lord Blythswood, who helped to carry on the work on St Conan's Kirk after Walter Campbell and his sister had both died. This chapel is in a very early Norman style and contains two slabs of Levantine marble about which there is a curious little history.

The first duly arrived on Loch Awe side in the summer of 1914, but the second had to wait until the end of the First World War before it could join its neighbour.

Names of those who died in the Boer War, the war in Korea, the war in Vietnam and the conflicts in Malaysia and Borneo have also been engraved on the memorial. The start of the fascinating Marble Line walk is then soon reached alongside the river before emerging onto Torrin Road. This is essentially a short stroll that can be easily made into a circular walk and has been appropriately described as an easy-going walk tracing the line of the railway line for the marble quarries at Kilchrist with views of Blaven and the surrounding hills. This line for the transport of marble from the quarries to the pier at Broadford ran from the early 18th century until the last quarry closed in 1912. The railway was a relatively late innovation, although it is believed that the same route was used for an aerial ropeway before engine power took over! The walk continues along the side of Strath Suardal 'the dale of green pasture', passing through two gates above houses at Suardal before reaching our initial destination of the circular remains of a winding wheel used to pull wagons up the steep incline. There are also more waste heaps and the remains of buildings and of course, the views of Blaven: but no sign of the legendary Ludag, the malevolent ...
