The name ‘Ellangowan’ is distinguished in origin, coming from the pen of Sir Walter Scott, one of Scotland’s greatest ever novelists.
His epic tale ‘Guy Mannering’ first published in 1815 is set in our very own Galloway region. It tells the story of Harry Bertram, the last male descendant of the Bertram dynasty and rightful heir to the ‘Ellangowan Estate’.
“Ride your ways,” said the gypsy, “ride your ways, Laird of Ellangowan. Our bairns are hingin at our weary backs – look that your braw cradle at hame be the fairer speed up”.
