A History Of The Clan Ogilvie in Scotland

By Burkhart William Ogilvie, written in both English and German

The perfect gift for anyone interested in the clan and their castles. Former librarian Burkhart has researched the family’s ancestry dating back centuries, from 860 until their emigration to Germany in 1665. Are you a member of Clan Ogilvie? Get in touch to share your story!

For a copy of the book please email Burkhart directly at Only £18.90, or €25!


Our passion is alpaca!

Perilla offer a fabulous range of alpaca socks from bed socks through to the thickest, warmest walking socks. Alpaca is a unique fibre, warmer than any other wool, as soft as cashmere but amazingly hardwearing. Moisture is gently wicked away from the skin, and the yarn naturally repels odour and bacteria. Other fine wool gifts are also available online. Everything can be beautifully gift boxed for friends and family.

Go on, treat yourself! Call: 01886 853 615

Interested in learning about the social history of Scotland? Follow the ancient Smuggling Trails, including Annandale and Luce Bay in Dumfriesshire and Wigtownshire, Carrick, Kyle and Cunningham in Ayrshire and the Irish connections around the coast of County Antrim.
