I visited Little Tullybelton last Sunday [5th July 2020]. I found a forlorn scene. Detritus surrounded the abandoned farm of Little Tullybelton. The smell of degrading waste was overwhelming.
Robert Nicoll (1814 – 1837) was a Scottish poet and lyricist whose life, although short, left a lasting impact. He was born at Tullybelton, north of Perth:
At Little Tullybelton, where a michty monument to Robert Nicholl’s poetic work still stands in a field. By the time of the first world war, the inscription on this monument had been so weathered by time that it had to be re-inscribed: ‘I have written my heart in my poems’
