    Blakerston Farm is part of St Bathans Estates - a 6000 acre farm originally owned by the Turnbull Family. Now it is a "game farm" raising about 80,000 pheasants each year for release in Britain and Europe for game hunting.
    William (1825), Elisabeth (1829) and George (1831) Moffat were born here to George Moffat and Isabella Clark, presumably while George and/or Isabella worked on Blakerston Farm.
