Gordon families in Dull and Blair Atholl parishes
« on: Tuesday 15 August 17 23:26 BST (UK) »
We think that virtually all of the Gordon families in the parishes of Dull and Blair Atholl originated with the Gordons living at Carrick in Glen Fincastle.

If you have Gordon ancestors from these areas please check our information or provide additions. 

The families seem to have spread to Perth, Edinburgh, Lanark, Fife, Dublin and Canada.

Thanks, Throth

If you would like to provide information we can it to the web-pages.  Likewise, if there are errors in the records please let us know and they can be corrected.

Carrick is a fair walk in from Glen Fincastle and a stiff climb up from the Blair Atholl side.  Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were taken up Tulloch on horseback by a ghillie, during one of their visits, to see the magnificent view.  They would have been very close to Carrick.  It is also special in having some limestone pavement, which is quite rare in Scotland.  The influence of the lime would have helped the growth of grass, rather than heather, so good for farming.
