Allanside House

'Used from the late eighteenth century as a chapel by a Presbyterian sect called the Auld Lichts'. The sect was a new one on me, despite having studied Scottish history at Aberdeen University for two years.
This article (and particularly the graphic at the start) shows how complex and splintered the protestant churches in Scotland were, and remain. 
J. M. Barrie, he of Peter Pan fame, also wrote a book about the sect: 'Auld Licht Idylls', which was also news to me. 
One little plaque, so much history. 
The house has a lively stream running under it (extras), which must make for an interesting conversation regarding house insurance.
