A Covenanter memorial in Loudoun Parish Churchyard
A Covenanter memorial in Loudoun Parish Churchyard
On the north side of the church and inscribed as follows:-

To the Memory of
John Nisbet of Hardhill
who suffered martyrdom at the Grassmarket
Edinburgh 4th December 1685
Animated by a Spirit
To which a Genuine Religion alone could give birth
and pure flame of civil and Religious Liberty
alone could keep alive
He manfully struggled for a Series of years
To stem the tide of National Degeneracy
And liberate his Country from the tyrannical
Aggressions of the perjured House of
Stuart
His conduct in arms at Pentland, Drumclog
And Bothwell Bridge
In opposition to Prelatic Encroachments &
In Defence of Scotlands Covenanted Reformation
Is recorded in the annals of
these oppressive times

His remains lie at Edinburgh
But the inhabitants of this his Native Parish
and friends to the cause for which he fought and died
Have caused this stone to be Erected
