About Alexander Ross, Balnagown

Han var den 9. godsejer af Balnagown.

Chief Alexander Ross 9th of Balnagowan is recorded as being a man of violence, utterly unscrupulous, given to raiding lands and forcing his clansmen to draw out agreements in his favour with total disregard for the law. Soon he was imprisoned in Tantallon Castle. Later he was released on the condition that he would live peacefully but he did not. His own son George was given permission to use fire and sword against him but Alexander could not be brought in.
