Besides a library, consisting of several hundred volumes, our author succeeded in collecting many interesting relics of the Covenanting times, to see which, and to visit the abode of the author of the "Scots Worthies," large numbers of people annually come from a distance. Among the curiosities at Lochgoin, are Captain Paton's sword and Bible—the sword which he used so well in so many conflicts, and the Bible, also well used, which he handed to his wife from the scaffold immediately before his execution.
