The Devil’s Pulpit

On the night of the 8th August 1908, Alexander Johnston took his life at The Devil’s Pulpit, Finnich Glen.

Alexander Johnston was aged 42 years of age and came originally from the island of Islay. He was a Gaelic speaker. The parish church of the Johnston family, Kilchoman, is now roofless and listed as a Building at Risk.

I visited Finnich Glen on Sunday 20th May 2018. It has become a favourite place for tourists given the success of Outlander which shot some scenes in the Glen.
