Todays task was to try and find evidence of the Bubonic plague that hit Brechin in 1647.
Our first stop was at the Cathedral itself, the heart of Brechin, and we were looking for a stone with a Latin inscription that translated as ' In four quarters of the crescent moon, 600 people have died of the pestilence'.
After much searching Bro finds the stone. Just 20 minutes before we were at the other side of that locked gate trying to get in!!
The next part of the trail was across to Kintrockat house where an ancient path led to an old mound where the families of the plague victims would leave food for them.
We got nabbed by the house owner trying to sneak into the woods but she said it was ok as Bro used his charm and blagging skills to allow us to continue.
And finally onto Logie Pert to find The Buchanan stone, regarded as the best stone in Angus due to it's masonary work and artistic merit.
