In Greyfriars Burying Ground pre-1855 MI's there are 14 references to the name Sharp and 18 to the name McLaren but there are no references to Howie.
The only inscription relevant to McLaren & Sharp is the following.

Have you seen the sticky Perth Cemeteries
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=776199.0
This will give you an idea of what the burying ground looks like.
Also there is no guarantee that the stone I quoted will still be there or still legible.

Hello all. New to this site.  Researching my GGGG GF Robert Eadie  (1761 - 1837), his dad (Andrew  b 1739) and his GF (Robert b 1713). From Parish of Kilmadock, Blackhill and Buchany Farm, Perthshire.  Going for a visit in 2 weeks and would love to see the area and perhaps find my ancestors resting place.  Any help or suggestions on places to explore the family roots would be most welcome.

I think you are posting in the wrong thread.
This thread is about cemeteries in named areas.
I haven't a clue regarding Kilmadock, Blackhill & Buchany Farm.

Thank you buckhyne.  Nothing immediately jumps out as 'mine' but I need to research more thoroughly to be sure. 
(Thomas Watson is my direct ancestor.  He married in Aberdeen, later lived in Edinburgh, was an engineer but died in the Tibbermore Poorhouse in 1880)
Thanks again for your help,
Marlene
