Family research shows my ancestry linked to Maitland Lauderdale Clan, and the Thirlestane Castle. I want to find out as much as I can before planning a trip in the area. I'd definitely like to stay as close if not at the castle itself. I want to visit other areas of Scotland as well. Any suggestions, ideas or information you can pass along would be greatly appreciated. Related to the Maitland Lauderdale Clan? We could be related!
