Memories of Kintyre

Postby inveryes » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:48 pm

Hi

Just thought I'd throw out a few names and places from the happy times we had visting Kintyre when I was wee, just in case any ring a bell with anyone.

I visited a lot in the sixties and seventies with my parents visiting various relations, but I have no idea what became of them.

There was Maggie ( McArthur? ) at the Witchburn in Campbeltown, as well as Katie McNab ( a teacher? ) who lived in Dell Road.

Peter and Dolly ( Maclean?) who lived at the Fairy Cottage or Fairy Glen at Torrisdale.

McNabs ( an "Uncle Alec"? )who lived at Brackley Farm in Carradale.

Anybody sound familiar?

Hi there, I have just read your post & had to reply.
My mother-in-law Jemima who died in August was born & brought up on Brackley farm. Peter & Dolly who you mention & lived at Glen House Torrisdale were her brother & sister-in Law. Johnny her other brother & his wife took over the farm from their father Malcolm Maclean until they retired & moved to Caple Lodge at Torrisdale. Alec Mcnab was their uncle, a shepherd, & he too lived at the farm.
Katie Mcnab was a cousin.
Hope this has been of some help. If you need any more information , my sister-in law maybe able to help.

Here's a photograph taken at Brackley in the early sixties ( judging by the Zodiac )

In the picture are Isa McIntosh, Alec McNab, Margaret Wright (nee Galbraith) and Maggie Maclean.

I am amazed to see if there would be some connections between you members. It is so good to meet someone who recognizes your parent's stories. If they are common between you, then you have so much to share and to ask each other.

Your memories are so beautiful thanks for sharing with us!!
countdown to new year to get the best memories!
