Kirkmichael and Cnoc Fergan
Kirkmichael and Cnoc Fergan
One fine Sunday in 1490 Alexander Gordon of Drumin, acting on behalf of the Earl of Huntly, who had recently purchased the lands of Strath Avon, came upon the local Grants and Clanallan, who objected to his ownership, at worship. Drumin's men piled up wood, from the trees handily growing on Cnoc Fergan, all round the church. Because this is the civilised East Highlands, not the West, they didn't actually set light to it, but merely threatened to do so unless the Grants and Clanallan gave security for their future good behaviour!
