Greenhill Covenanters House

Central Scotland
ML12 6DT

Greenhill is a place where time has been made to stand still taking us back from the time when King James VI travelled south of the border to his new kingdom to the time over a century later when the two kingdoms were united.

For a great deal of that time James, and his son Charles I and grandsons Charles II and James VII tried to rule against the wishes of the Kirk of Scotland and the majority of the people, with the troubles developing into open war and rebellion.

Here in this old house, the story of these far off times is told simply, reflected in the life and courage of its then owner, Lady Greenhill, and in the record of Biggar during the relatively peaceful time under the Commonwealth, which is found in the writings of the local diarist, Andrew Hay.
