We visited the Wardlaw Mausoleum on our tour of the area. It was fascinating to read the inscriptions on the old stones in the yard and even more interesting to hear the stories of the history of the building. Take a tour in this area...More
This is truly a unique place; steeped in history that reaches well beyond the small town in which it is located.
In order to access the mausoleum, you will need to contact the local family that cares for the site. If available, they will give...More

The building and crypt are fascinating, due to knee I never went up...More

The mausoleum itself is beautiful. You can climb up the tower, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like tight spaces.
The crypt is, well, interesting. It's small and contains some old, open coffins.
Admittedly, I got the idea to come here from Google. Seems guides were being hired to take them here, since it's the Old Fox of Outlander fame. Drove here and the gate to the graveyard was unlocked, but I knew the Old Fox was inside...More
