Anne Forbes’s book is called Trials and Triumphs: The Gordons of Huntly in Sixteenth-Century Scotland.
Anne has lived in Glass since 1980 and became interested in the subject when researching her family history which goes back to the Gordons from here. Some of the stories were so dramatic that she thought they would be good material for a book. The book is to be launched at the Aboyne Games on 4th August in the Gordon tent. Next day, Sunday 5th August, there will be local launch at Huntly Castle at 3.00 p.m. A news article from the Huntly Express, which appeared on 17th February 2012, can be downloaded by clicking here
