George Beattie of St Cyrus

John Malloy and Barry Graham, authors of ‘George Beattie of St Cyrus’ will be giving a presentation on the life of George Beattie at Montrose Baptist Church, Coronation Way, at 7.30 p.m. on Tuesday (September 23).

John and Barry are currently involved in further research.

The story of George Beattie, poet, legal writer and free thinker, is a complex and interesting one.

Most people in this area know of’Beattie’s Grave’ in Old Nether Church Yard, St Cyrus and know something of his sad love affair and subsequent tragic death.

The meeting is open to all and there will be books available at no charge although a donation to Children in Need or Debra would be appreciated.
