The Lady of Lawers was a Highland Seeress who came from Appin with the "Red Companions" to Loch Tay immediately after the razing of that country by Montrose and his avenging army in 1646. She joined her young husband in the rebuilding of Lawers and, following entanglements with the ever-expanding Campbells of Glen Orchy, who during her lifetime became the powerful Tayside Breadalbane Campbells, she developed her gift of prophecy. Her prophecies were many: she foretold the immediate future of those around her and also looked far ahead and saw the coming prosperity of Loch Tay and the Clearances thereafter.
