Lainshaw Castle in  Historical records show that Stewarton has existed since at least the 12th century with various non-historical references to the town dating to the early 11th century. He later found refuge with King Harthacanute , who reigned as Canute II, King of England and Norway and in , after returning to Scotland and defeating Mac Bethad in the Battle of Lumphanan in to become King of Scots , he rewarded Friskine’s family with the Baillie of Cunninghame to show his gratitude to the farmer who had saved his life 17 years earlier.

The family were originally from Morville in Normandy Wernebald was from Flanders and had been established in Scotland for at least twenty years when one of the family was involved in the murder of Thomas Becket.

It is fierce fare. Set in , it revolves around a rookie female cop, Kate Murphy, on her first day on the job in an Atlanta on the verge of economic disaster and with a police force riddled with corruption. Murphy is partnered with Maggie Lawson, whose uncle and brothers are the heart of the Atlanta force, and a black heart it is. The female partners find themselves caught up in a desperate hunt for a cop killer, but spend their time fighting off their fellow male officers — who should be helping them.
A bleak portrait of cops four decades ago, with a hint of Joseph Wambaugh, it is peopled with characters that leap off the page and reveals the bleak reality of a force that should be there to protect and serve, but most certainly is not doing so. He died on the operating table, but was rescued and is now back in charge of a new murder investigation, even though suffering from acute post-traumatic-stress disorder. Taut, with a heart-wrenchingly honest protagonist and impressive literary style, it is among the best of the new Tartan noir, a story told with real poignancy amid the ugliness and fear.
A breathtakingly fast-paced tale that seldom pauses for breath, the premise is simple. All goes well until two kidnappings go wildly wrong, and the four find themselves on the run — not just from a white Minneapolis state policeman and a young, black female FBI agent, but also from the mob. By mistake, they kidnapped the husband of a Mafia princess. Written by a former professional poker player, it evokes the language of street with superb panache, and a second instalment is due in two months.
I just wonder whether it might better have been called The Amateurs.

As part of the Millennium celebrations, an exhibition known as The Big Idea opened in It was constructed on the north side of the River Irvine near the former Nobel quay.

In the Ayrshire town of Kilwinning an event reunites two parts of just such an object – a lost medal and a silver arrow. It is all part of a tradition which dates back hundreds of years and traces many big events.
In times gone by local lairds and landowners used to gather their armed men periodically so they could demonstrate they were fit and ready for battle should the need arise. Those are the origins of an archery competition held, albeit with breaks, to this day in Kilwinning. It is known as the papingo shoot – an old word for parrot. Competitors shoot from the foot of the town’s abbey tower at a wooden pigeon, hanging on a pole from the tower more than ft up in the air.
The trophy associated with this competition has real historical tales to tell. It is a serious bit of bling, a silver arrow dating from the s, mounted on a later silver bow, with crossed arrows. It hangs heavily with winner’s medals, in earlier days provided by those who managed the feat of shooting down the papingo.
Each has its own story like the one with no name from which was won by a young Jacobite. By when the medal was being hung on the trophy, the winner Charles Boyd was elsewhere.

Name[ edit ] Beith’s name is thought to emanate from Ogham , which is sometimes referred to as the “Celtic Tree Alphabet”, ascribing names of trees to individual letters. Beithe in Old Irish means Birch-tree cognate to Latin betula. There is reason to believe that the whole of the district was covered with woods. The town of Beith itself was once known as ‘Hill of Beith’ as this was the name of the feudal barony and was itself derived from the Court Hill near Hill of Beith Castle.
Angela Newlands is alleged to have murdered the year-old by slitting her throat next to the Maggie Wall’s Memorial near Dunning, Perthshire, on 9th or 10th May this year. Newlands, from Inchture, was remanded in custody after appearing in private at Perth Sheriff Court on a murder petition earlier. She is alleged to have assaulted Miss Johnstone, from Ayrshire, by repeatedly striking her on the neck with a sharp implement.

Newlands, who is the second person to face a murder charge in connection with Miss Johnstone’s death, was fully committed for trial. Jordan Johnstone, 24, has already been fully committed for trial in connection with an identical charge relating to the murder of his sister Annalise. Johnstone, made a second appearance in private at Perth Sheriff Court on 1 June and made no motion for bail.
He was remanded in custody. The petition against him alleged that he repeatedly struck his sister in the neck with a sharp implement at the witch’s monument. Johnstone, who had been living in Perthshire, also faced a second charge alleging he had stolen a caravan in Irvine, Ayrshire, on 9 May.
