Covenanters' Memorial, Cargilston
The memorial commemorates six Covenanters from Maybole - Mungo Eccles, Thomas Horne, Robert McGarron, John McHarrie, John McWhirter and William Rodger. These men lost their lives when the slave ship, the Crown of London was shipwrecked off the east coast of Orkney in 1679. They were being transported to the North American plantations as slaves because of their Covenanting beliefs.
