The Martyr's Grave
The Martyr's Grave
William Gordon of Earlston, near St John's Town of Dalry, was banished from Scotland for his support of the Covenanters. He was able to return to Scotland and was making his way towards Bothwell Bridge on 22 June 1679 when he was met by dragoons near to Crookedstone farm in Hamilton parish and shot dead. Requests to allow him burial in Dalry were refused, so his grave can be seen here at Glassford kirkyard.
