Further tours include:  Tour Barr Castle where Wishart and Knox preached; meet Pastor Gavin Beers and visit Knox sites in Ayr and hear a Scottish pastor tell about the challenges and blessings of ministering the gospel in Scotland today; stop at Sanquhar where Richard Cameron took his stand against tyranny in church and state…

You could also try your luck and see if you can bump into another  Brit called “Knox” who has never heard of John Knox.  [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4WP0Q5R7HE#t=18 ]
