Forfar Loch part 2. [02:01]
There is a memorial in the park, at the side of the loch, rembering the local women who were accused of being ' witches' and executed. I have written a bit about their story. The bustling market town of Forfar shares a terrible secret with many other parts of Scotland in the seventeenth century. The town was the scene of a terrible witch hunt, which resulted in the torture and execution of several local women. According to the town council's records, the witch hunt appears to have been triggered in 1661 by an argument between Isobel Shyrie, a poor woman who was unable to pay her taxes, and Baillie George Wood, a tax collector. During the quarrel, Isobel cursed Baillie Wood. When the unfortunate man suddenly dropped dead, all fingers pointed at Isobel. In those days, it was considered that there were three ways to spot a witch, she went by a nickname instead of the name she was baptised with; there was a mark on her body that was impervious to pain; or she practiced 'malefice' which was the use of supernatural means to do evil.

Graham Mausoleum Methven Church Perthshire Scotland August 19th [01:03]
Tour Scotland video of the Graham Mausoleum by Methven Church in Perthshire. This is the burial vault for General Thomas Graham of Balgowan, Lord Lynedoch, and his wife who was the Honourable Mary Cathcart, daughter of Charles Cathcart, 9th Lord Cathcart. Deeply affected by the death of his wife, Thomas Graham, Lord Lynedoch, commissioned a Mausoleum to her memory in the kirk yard at Methven, Perthshire. This gave the architect James Playfair, a chance to put to practice his most advanced ideas and the resultant design in the form of a gigantic sarcophagus is truly amazing for its period. After a long life Lord Lynedoch joined his wife in her last resting place in 1848. The Mausoleum is the free standing building in front of the church.
