1806
The 9th troop of the first Royal Dragoons on route from Hamilton to Ireland attempted to cross the severely flooded river Stinchar at Ballantrae. 5 horses with their riders were washed away in the current and only with the help of the local people were they saved (4 by the people wading into the river and the 5th by a boat crewed by 4 Ballantrae lads further downstream)
