The Panmure Testimonial
The Panmure Testimonial
The Panmure Testimonial is situated on a hill to the western edge of the Panmure Estate and was a gift to the then laird, the Earl of Panmure. Apparently, during several years of poor harvests in the 1820s the Earl was willing to forgo the annual rent due to him by his tenant farmers. When the situation improved they erected this testimonial (not a memorial or monument, as it is often miscalled) in 1839 as a "thank you" to him. Rumour has it that the idea was his!!
