More on My Muir Family

Vicki’s Note – I was thrilled to have my sisters share this page on Facebook about our Muir Family.  This is where I would go if I ever get to visit Scotland.  You can read my previous Post about our Muir Family by searching “muir” on This BLOG.  The family was Scots – Irish.  Hummmm – writers; historians.  That’s familiar.

Rowallan Castle, Scotland

This grand Renaissance mansion is based around a late 13th century tower house. Extended over the centuries that followed, it was the home of the influential Muir family who counted writers, historians, and composers amongst their number; the earliest lute music to survive in Scotland was written at Rowallan.

The castle is located near Kilmaurs, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, Scotland.
