ANGUS or FORFARSHIRE - VOLUME 1, by A. J. WARDEN, F.S.A.

PAGE 407 - HISTORIC AND NOBLE FAMILIES

CHAPTER - VI - PANMURE

Lord Panmure was beloved by his numerous tenantry, towards whom he invariably acted in a generous and gentlemanly manner. His favourite toast was "Live and let live," and that kindly sentiment pervaded his every-day life. The tenantry, in token of their gratitude and high esteem, subscribed for and erected, in honour of his Lordship, upon the top of Downie Hill, in Monikie, a noble circular column, 100 feet in height. The Panmure Testimonial was erected in 1839. It commands a magnificent view over a wide extent of country, is a lasting tribute to worth, and a standing evidence that to "Live and let live" is the wisest policy.

The House of Panmure stands within a mile of the "Live and let live" Testimonial, which is a striking object when seen from it, and a splendid carriage way through picturesque scenery leads from the one to the other. The old Castle of Panmure stood within a short distance of the present house.  No record of the date of its erection exists, but portions of ruins still remain. (Hardly visible in 2001.)

Lord Panmure died at Brechin Castle on the 13th April, 1852, and by his own desire was buried in the parish churchyard of Brechin.
