Mount Tabor at Craufurdland Castle
According to a tradition recorded by the OS name book in the mid nineteenth century, a preaching site used by the Covenanters lay close to Craufurdland Castle in Kilmarnock parish, Ayrshire:
‘A small eminence situated in a Plantation near Craufurdland Castle and Mr. Craufurd says it got this name from being a preaching station in the time of the Covenanters.’
The small eminence at Craufurdland was named after the biblical Mount Tabor.
