Robert Haldane - Home (1809-1842)

In 1809, Robert Haldane sold his remaining estates and purchased the estate of Auchingray, in Lanarkshire — a desolate moor of 2000 acres, on which grew only a single tree; but through his vision and work it soon had forests of larch, fir, birch, ash, and coppice. This, however, was not his chief occupation, for a large portion of his time was spent in the study, where his preparations for the pulpit equalled those of the most ambitious or painstaking minister.
