Anwoth


Dumfries and Galloway

A settlement in a parish of the same name in the Vale of Fleet, Dumfries and Galloway, Anwoth lies a mile (1.5 km) to the west of Gatehouse of Fleet. The non-conformist clergyman Rev. Samuel Rutherford (1600-61) was the minister at Anwoth Old Kirk between 1627 and 1636, when he was banished to Aberdeen. He is remembered by Rutherford's Monument on a nearby hill. An ancient fort on Trusty's Hill was occupied by the Picts who carved a series of symbol stones in a rock beside the entrance passage.
