Entrance to Baron MacInturner, Forestry Commission
Entrance to Baron MacInturner, Forestry Commission
'Baron MacInturner' appears to be the name of the forest. Information from Alison Duncan informs me that a Macinturner was awarded a barony by Robert the Bruce (in 1300s?); a later descendent was killed around here on the Larach in 1685 by an Atholl man who probably suspected he was a Campbell; the King had brought the Atholl men down to help quell the rebellious Campbells - the earl of Argyll was in exile in Europe. The Atholl men were told to kill all chiefs and captains of the Clan Campbell. Macinturner was probably related to the Lamonts (who regularly feuded with the Campbells).
