Stevenson’s cave

This is the cave on the river Allan that Robert Louis Stevenson felt had always been “a part of me”.

My family used to own Drumdruils, where the cave is to be found on the Darn road. It was in this cave that my relative, Margaret Baird, received a proposal for marriage at midnight on the 22nd of February 1866, by Daniel Watson. This couple lived at Sunnylaw, as a married couple for all of 50, and more together.
