Panmure Testimonial

A prominent monument which crowns Cambustane Hill in SE Angus, the Panmure Testimonial lies a half-mile (1 km) to the southeast of Craigton and 1¼ miles (2 km) east southeast of Monikie. Also known as the 'Live and Let Live Monument', it was erected in 1839 by the tenants of the Panmure Estate in appreciation of the fact that their Laird, William Maule, 1st Lord Panmure (1771 - 1852), was willing to forgo their rents during several years of poor harvests in the 1820s.

Designed by John Henderson of Edinburgh, the Testimonial comprises a Neo-Gothic buttressed base, with a fluted column rising 32m (105 feet) and topped by an ornamental vase. A spiral stair-case ascends within the monument to a viewing platform at the top.
