“He was familiar with every road in Scotland”

Yesterday, whilst searching for family story, I found this obituary of my great-great-great grandfather:

John Gordon (1816-1899) was familiar with every road in Scotland

My great-great-great grandfather, John Gordon (born 1816, died 1899) was born in the ‘fairm-toun’ of Bovaglia at the foot of the mountain of Lochnagar, Aberdeenshire. Bovaglia is a place that is very dear to me. It is most inaccessible. The story of the decline of Bovaglia  is recorded in my film “Bundle and Go!”:
