This is a view of Snar and the farm which i remember as being connected with the Dixon family. Mrs Nixon was connected with the Crawfordjohn Museum and its library.
In the foreground is the remains of a deserted Medieval settlement which would have been connected with the tower house near the farm. The tower house overlooks what is called the Priest`s pool . About 1515 the tower was the residence of Jock of Snar and his wife. Jock had gone to market while his wife was entertaining the local priest. Unfortunately Jock returned early from market and found his wife in bed with the priest. He was thrown by the enraged Jock straight into a pool beneath the tower.
