Dumfries and Galloway

A farm in the Cree Valley of Galloway, Glenvernoch lies a mile (1.4 km) south southwest of Bargrennan and 7 miles (11 km) north northwest of Newton Stewart. This was the family home of Margaret Wilson, one of the Wigtown Martyrs. Her father Gilbert Wilson had appealed for clemency, but despite this being granted she was drowned at the Martyrs' Stake in Wigtown Bay in 1685. Glenvernoch Fell is situated a half-mile (1 km) to the southwest.
