Points of Interest
The family of the world famous author Robert Louis Stevenson (Kidnapped, Treasure Island etc) were, once upon a time, the owners of Parklea and the young RLS had many happy holidays here and even returned as an adult because his childhood memories were so splendid.
In 1763 one of Robert Burns’ loves, ‘Highland’ Mary Campbell, was born in a cottage a stones throw away from Parklea.
