Definitely the 1970s George Wilson left Clachaig in 1978.

I was going to say late 70s or early 80s. Our house was built in 1974, Rangiemarie was quite a while after that.

I think 70’s too, as The Barr’s were in Mornish lodge Hotel in the 70’s! Also the C.W.S food, drapers and butchers advert and I think the Coop drapers closed in the 70’s, as I’m sure it was closed by the time I start in 1978 🤔

Great read thanks for sharing as brought back many memories. 👏👏

Mid to late '70s for sure.

The grill bar was mum and dads before the old mill

Mark Wilson i wasp a 79 baby , mum and dad brought me home to the grill bar !! It wasn't long though before they got the old mill and started renovation

Well as the Bank of Scotland ad is my dad - it was between 4th February1975 till 16th September 1980. How's that....

Ewan McPhail /Cathy Gladston left the Clachaig about 1973 and built a house next to Gordon Webster

I think closer to 1974/5 we left LixToll autumn 1975 by then we had 2 phone numbers 280 &380. Also Noticed Dochie Croall no longer owner at Luib. caravan park.

I dont think that Rangiemarie, one of the B&B Adverts was built in 1975

Archie T McLauchlan

I think it’s about 1978

Alasdair Campbell Hello Alasdair, interesting to read this old friendship with our Campbell ancestors at Tullich. Hope you’re all well. Yvonne (one of your Campbell cousins)

Thanks Alasdair...another bit to add to the jigsaw of Campbell family history. (Susan Campbell ex LixToll).

Iain Campbell Iain, I would say these were taken from up around Wester Lix. I recognise some of the views from a time when we used to run about on the hillside up above Lix Toll, before the trees were planted. The first one looking west towards Ardchyle and the second one looking east, down the A827 (just below Lix Toll) towards Killin with Ben Lawers etc in the background.

From the photo I took yesterday I would agree that the original was taken somewhere in the trees near Wester Lix

On the right I think is Tayview and Fairview. I'm the left is where Molly McRobbie now stays and the next door cottage then Pink Cottage with Myrtle Grove in the distance. Taken from about McRae's and MacGregor's shops

Courtesy of Google Earth

Tayview was built circa 1880 so that picture could have been taken before that date since fairview was built a couple of years earlier

Would love a photo of Drumfinn when it was the bank ???

When I had a walk around Killin Cemetery at Pier Road today with Mum she said it would have been a farmer's field at one time,I said I didn't know so it got me thinking was it or maybe that ground has always been the cemetery??

UPDATE,
I've had information that where the cemetery is was indeed part of the field surrounding it & dairy cows used to graze on it

My mother and father in law are both buried there. Been a cemetery a long time but like you not sure how long or what it was before.

The original one was at the side of Killin Hotel

My aunt’s house at 3 Pier Road was sold when she went into a care home. I’d heard the new owners were making changes and if anyone could take a photo I’d love to see what they’ve done. It had a garden that extended up onto the hill behind

.

From the description of the first two scenes on side two, it appears two different engines were working the line on the day of recording. As I understand it, that must have been a pretty rare event? Or was that more common than I'm aware of?

Lesley Kettle

Jim and Mary Hunter

Mrs Simpson

Mrs Grant?

Is that Granny Simpson Wendy Brenda.

Mum? Fiona Stewart know what's going on or when it was taken?

The man centre front is John Hendrie, Labour Councillor, Stirlling and behind him, David ?, L. Lomond and Trossachs Tourist Board.

Fiona thinks this was at a presentation of the Tourism Floral Awards as the large Bowl she is holding was for the Window Box and Hanging Basket section. Not sure of the year.
