|Donald MacLaren the current chief of the MacLarens in Balquhidder continues his campaign of mis-information in his absurd claim that Rob Roy is not buried in the Balquhidder Kirkyard. I think perhaps Donald has gone of the edge! I don't know what he was thinking originally, buying property in the clan MacGregors domain of Balquhidder, especially 'Kirkton' which historically was owned by the MacGregors, since the early 1700s.|
Even Daniel MacLaurin of Auchleskine who was raised in Balquhidder in the early 1800s, describes Rob Roy's grave in the Balquhidder Kirkyard in his book. "History in Memorium of the Clan Laurin" published in 1867.
It is Daniel MacLaurin's heraldry and genealogy that Donald MacLaren used in his 1957 Petition to the Court of the Lord Lyon to become Donald MacLaren of Auchleskine and the later 'of MacLaren'.
